New Orleans African American Museum
new orleans, LA
The New Orleans African American Museum (The NOAAM)
Located in Tremé, the oldest surviving black community in the United States, the New Orleans African American Museum is dedicated to protecting, preserving, and promoting through education the history, art, and culture of African Americans in New Orleans and the African diaspora. Exhibits change regularly, so call ahead to find out what is on display.
The Museum is housed in the beautiful Tremé Villa, considered by some to be one of the finest examples of a Creole villa in the city. Built in 1828-29, the home retains many of its original decorative details. There are five restored buildings to visit. Visitors enjoy both established and emerging artists' work in sculpture, painting and other artistic expressions.
Plan to spend as much time as you wish in the serene gardens surrounding the villa. Located on the site of a former plantation, the beautifully landscaped grounds cover one city block. There are three main courtyards on the front, rear, and side which also features a lovely gazebo in the center of the yard. Wear comfortable shoes, as many of the courtyards are made of original handmade bricks. The villa is available for weddings, bridal teas, and small meetings and receptions.
