Do a little bit of homework before you go so you can ask good question. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge.

Yes, it's a living museum, meaning they encourage you to touch things, sit on things, play things. And the guide was amazing!

From Our Editors

Beauregard-Keyes House, with a white-columned tuscan portico, was originally built in 1826 on land sold by the Old Ursuline Convent and rises dramatically above two grand stone staircases. Within the restored Victorian interior, period furniture, personal effects, and other ephemera pay tribute to the lives of the house?s two most famous residents: Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard (1866?1868) and Frances Parkinson Keyes (1944?70), author of tomes such as Dinner at Antoine?s, The Chess Players, and War and Peace. Beneath the soaring ceilings, dotted with chandeliers and flanked by intricate crown moulding, a stately piano, delicate china, and General Beauregard?s original bedroom furniture hark back to bygone days and decorating styles. Keyes? writing studio and her collections of fans, folk costumes, 200 dolls and 87 rare porcelain teapots recall a more modern era, and the brick-walled back garden, which has been tended by the Garden Study Club of New Orleans to replicate the original 1856 design, includes a cast-iron fountain and boxwood hedges.
