Louisiana State Museum - The Cabildo New Orleans Reviews
Katrina Exhibit Nov 03, 2015
I would highly recommend a visit should you happen to find yourself in New Orleans. Located centrally in Jackson Square the museum offers exhibits on the history of New Orleans and Mardi Gras.
I was particularly moved by the Katrina Exhibit which tells the story of the hurricane through interactive displays (audio, video) and first hand accounts of the disaster. The stories of loss, despair and acts of heroism left me in tears more than once. Although I followed along with the recovery efforts back in 2004 I had no idea the true impact of Katrina on the people of New Orleans.
Situated right in the center of Jackson Square makes this museum an easy stopping off point for your visit to NOLA.
