Neighborhood: French Quarter
Overview

This is the only example of West Indian architecture combined with early Creole home design in the French Quarter. The Madame John's Legacy building standing today was constructed in the late 1700s after the original was destroyed in fire. The name of the museum is taken from a French sea captain who bequeathed his estate to his mistress on his deathbed. In 1998, the structure underwent extensive restoration and is now open as a state museum featuring exhibits about architecture, restoration and archaeological finds. The second floor features art exhibits.
