Backstreet Cultural Museum Tours

Backstreet Cultural Museum
Visitors from around the world come to the Backstreet Cultural Museum to learn about New Orleans’ African American culture and Mardi Gras traditions.

Today, along with photographs you’ll find elaborate costumes, artifacts and memorabilia, much of which has been donated over the years.

The Backstreet Cultural Museum offers guided tours to help visitors understand the importance of New Orleans’ processional traditions, and in addition to permanent exhibits, the site hosts music and dance performances.
