The only mint in existence to hold the designation of printing both U.S. and Confederate coinage, the Old U.S. Mint has a story all its own. Built in 1835 and a product of Andrew Jackson’s “Bank War,” the Mint was built in the Greek Revival style and houses the history of 1838 until 1909 when minting ceased. Visitors can walk the mint exhibits and then the much applauded New Orleans Mint Performing Arts Center where new Jazz is made and the history of the art form is preserved. Located at the brink of the French Quarter and bordering the now famous Treme district, the Old U.S. Mint is a welcome reprieve from sometimes long days on your feet exploring the nuances of the Quarter, and even houses some great Jazz shows itself.

Practical Info:

The Old U.S. Mint is located at 400 Esplanade Ave, on the Eastern edge of the French Quarter. Admission is $6 for adults, and the Mint is open Tuesday – Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. To see the near-nightly music that’s playing at the mint, see their calendar, but know that doors typically open at 7:00 and the admission price is typically in the neighborhood of $10 - $20
