Purchased the NO Sightseeing Pass, but did not buy the insurance as we were in the area regardless. Notified from the Big Easy that the main attractions (Jazz Cruise / Big Easy City and Graveyard tours are cancelled. Contacted Sightseeing Pass to request a refund......no refund as did not buy the insurance. With eveything closed.....pass is of no value. The Passes are extended to April 2, 2022; which is of no help to us as we won't be back. So DO NOT purchase in adavance unless you want to pay the extra! Very poor customer service in these times!!!!

We invite you to join us for an educational journey back to the early days of Louisiana bayou and swamp explorations. Swamp creatures, seeing our boats daily, recognize them as part of their normal environment.
Unafraid and responsive to their boat captain's call, they peak out from underbrush and between moss-draped trees and shrubs, frequently coming directly to the boat. In the safety and comfort of the boat, you can actually come within a few feet of jumping alligators.
As your boat drifts through the waterways, you will learn about the Louisiana Wetlands, the inhabitants of the swamp, particularly the life and habits of the American Alligator, as well as the unique history of the Cajun town of Frenier within the Manchac Swamp.

Duration: 2 hours

Visit: Le Musee de f.p.c., 2336 Esplanade Ave, New Orleans, LA 70119-2502

Locked by law into a marginal existence between slavery and freedom, free people of color were anomalies in a caste society rooted in Black and White, master and enslaved.
Still, their undeniable achievements and vibrant culture serve to rewrite the conventional narrative of the history of New Orleans. Le Musée de f.p.c. deals exclusively with interpreting, preserving and presenting the story and material culture of free people of color as it examines the first three centuries of New Orleans history.

Visit: The Presbytere, 751 Chartres Street Jackson Square, New Orleans, LA 70116

The Presbytère’s two permanent exhibits tell two sides of the ongoing Louisiana story—one of celebration and one of resilience.
Mardi Gras: It’s Carnival Time in Louisiana offers a window into the annual celebration and riotous rituals of Mardi Gras, a festival that is inextricably woven into Louisiana’s way of life and whose roots extend deep into the Middle Ages. There are parade floats to climb, costumes to see and historical throws on display as well as rare glimpses into the secretive social club society from which modern-day Mardi Gras krewes evolved.
The Living with Hurricanes: Katrina and Beyond exhibit tells of rescue, rebuilding and renewal. When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans’ badly engineered levee system, it resulted in one of the worst disasters in American history, leaving 80 percent of the city flooded and hundreds dead. The exhibit documents the event, the aftermath and southeast Louisiana’s ongoing recovery.
