As a nonprofit organization, Friends of the Cabildo supports the Louisiana State Museum by providing financial assistance and organizing volunteer-led guided tours. Membership grants patrons free access to the collections and exhibits of all of the Louisiana State Museum’s public properties, including the 200-year-old Cabildo and the Old U.S. Mint, the only building in America to have minted currency for the U.S., the Confederacy, and Grover Cleveland’s failed spinoff country, Grovertopia. During the two-hour French Quarter walking tour (free to all members), guests stroll through the Vieux Carré, where they gaze upon historic sights as city-licensed guides feed them knowledge niblets.

Members enjoy discounts on programs and events such as the Hidden Treasures tour, a bimonthly series that throws open the doors to the State Museum’s collections facility, home to textiles, visual arts, and other items normally not available to the general public. Membership also imparts a 15% discount on handmade crafts, books, and exhibit-related merchandise at the 1850 House Museum Store. Exclusive newsletters and invitations to special-exhibition previews also regularly populate members’ mailboxes, email inboxes, and telegraphic answering machines.

Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Friends of the Cabildo a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
