I highly recommend a trip to Mardi Gras World if you are lucky enough to be visiting New Orleans. It is spectacular sight, the floats are amazing. It is also interesting seeing the craftsmen at their work and finding out how they make the floats. We were in New Orleans for my husbands 50th birthday from the UK and doing this on his big day just added to a day of entertainment.

Unique experience. Boring, uninformed tour guide. (Told us that it was a coincidence that Fat Tuesday happened just before Ash Wed. and that MG had no religious roots.) You should go, but don't expect to learn anything! :)

Great tour. Excellent overview of the work that goes into the year-round planning and running of this huge "party". We got a complete tour of the main warehouse....wasn't really expecting to see this much access...so that was great!! We went the 2nd week of January, which was a good time to tour. We were able to take as many pictures as we wanted.
