Musee Conti Wax Museum
At Musee Conti Wax Museum, see life-sized, costumed wax figures of the people who made New Orleans and Louisiana famous, including a number of historic figures like President A. Jackson, Jean Lafitte and musicians Pete Fountain and Louis Armstrong. A number of costumes are also on display, including some spectacular Mardi Gras attire. Visitors can also experience the Haunted Dungeon, occupied by "Masters of the Macabre," such as Edgar Allen Poe and Victor Hugo. You almost expect them to reach out and grab you. Although currently closed to the public, you can call to arrange an event or a group tour.
We visited 5/08 with a group of high schoolers. We were the only people there. They only allow groups at this point.
The tour guide was too wordy! There was no AC on, so the kids were restless. The place needs much TLC. Turn on the lights!

The Wax Museum was an excellent portrayal of New Orleans history. Especially with the part about Madame LaLaurie. Though the Museum is something for complete history buffs. It was not the kind of Wax Museum I was expecting. Though the admission to get in was well worth it.. Not expensive at all!
