The Musée Conti Wax Museum is currently CLOSED
The WAX will re-open after a brief retirement at Jazzland Theme Park.
"We have found that the events represented by wax figures along with the
guide's explanations parallels closely with the information we have been
teaching our students. Seeing these "life - like" figures, the authentic
clothing and realistic settings has helped tremendously to reinforce what
has been learned and also spurs interest and further independent
research. We enjoy our visits to the Musée Conti and look forward to
reliving New Orleans history again next spring, if not sooner."

"Starting our day at your museum and then extending the learning with a
walking tour of the historic French Quarter is an invaluable experience.
We found the figures and scenes fascinating. You would be surprised if
you could see how well your exhibits match our textbook. (Our guide was
so informative). When we returned, the students wrote essays about the
trip. I am satisfied that they learned a great deal."

"I feel New Orleans has a rich heritage and that the Musée Conti is
doing an excellent job preserving it!"
