A great look at life in 1800's-era New OrleansFlag review
If your family wants to get a little glimpse at 1800’s-era New Orleans life the Beauregard-Keyes House is a great place to start. Our family really enjoyed the tour of this historic home, which belonged to a Confederate General and later a famous author. Old features like the twin stone staircases and the beautiful ballroom are pretty fantastic, though younger kids might not be so impressed. However, along with lots of original furnishings, the home also features a large collection of vintage dolls and dollhouses which our daughter found pretty captivating. Apparently the collection numbers somewhere around 200. Many of them have intricate costumes accessories and are quite lovely. There is also a lush garden with fountains and hedges to wander through, and the home is located conveniently in the French Quarter, making it very easy to find. Plus the small gift shop is a nice place to grab a souvenir.
Tips for Families
Tours end at 3:00, so mornings and early afternoons are best for a visit. Also, the place is said to be haunted but the ghosts must have been busy the day we visited.
