The earliest history museums had little actual history to draw on, and instead padded exhibits with wildly speculative displays about how dinosaurs would be elected to Congress by the year 2000. See how far we’ve come with today’s Groupon to the Southern Food & Beverage Museum, located at the Julia Street entrance of the Riverwalk mall. Choose between the following options:

  • For $5, you get one admission to the Southern Food & Beverage Museum and The Museum of the American Cocktail (up to a $10 value).<p>

  • For $39, you get a membership package (an $85 total value) that includes:
  • A one-year Friends and Family membership to the Southern Food & Beverage Museum (a $75 value)
  • A copy of the Red Beans and Ricely Yours cookbook (a $10 value)<p>

The Southern Food & Beverage Museum quells culinary curiosities with ongoing exhibits celebrating the unique bites and beverages of the South. Permanent exhibits include Tout de Sweet: All About Sugar, which examines the role of sugar production in Louisiana, and A Table at Galatoire’s, which traces the venerable restaurant’s history through artifacts such as original plates and salvaged blue-cheese crumbles. Inside the museum, guests encounter The Museum of the American Cocktail, a Martha Stewart brand-endorsed knowledge vault that explores the history of mixed drinks from the 1800s to the modern day, housing original absinthe fountains and Prohibition-era flasks crafted from Al Capone’s day planner.

Avid museum-goers can purchase a one-year Friends and Family membership, which entitles one member and up to three guests to visit the museum at no charge for one year. Members also receive notifications of and discounts to all upcoming programs and special events as well as an e-newsletter and a 10% discount on museum-shop merchandise, including cookbooks and rare unlucky wishbones. Children associated with the membership can attend kids’ culinary camps for free and will receive a complimentary SoFAB T-shirt or apron at their first session.

Customer Reviews

Great to do once, especially at the groupon price!

Fun place if your expectations aren't too high. They're still putting it together. Be aware that it's not open on Tuesday! Nothing thrilling, but, some fun facts along the way. Note: across the street is the New Orleans Jazz market which features NO jazz band with Irwin Mayfield. He plays there on occasion. Check it out!
