|About these ratings|
When people say that New Orleans isn't the best place to bring the kids, they're forgetting about the Louisiana Children's Museum. Yes, Bourbon Street may be too rowdy, but this two-story facility is a play-topia in disguise. The museum features hands-on exhibits that cover everything from giant eyeballs and bubbles to a climbing wall and a scale model of Jackson Square. The museum also hosts numerous special events, from story-times to holiday-related activities. Many travelers agree that this is a must-do with younger kids.
South of the French Quarter in the Warehouse Museum District, the Louisiana Children's Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 4:30 p.m. During the summer, you can visit on Mondays and the doors stay open 30 minutes longer. Admission is $8 per person. For more information, check out the Louisiana Children's Museum website.
