Every inch of the Backstreet Cultural Museum—from the front porch, to the pictures that adorn the wall, to the costumes and artifacts—contains a story.
The Backstreet Cultural Museum provides guided tours that encourage visitors to learn more about why New Orleans’ processional traditions are so important.
Visit us, and allow our tour guides to help you discover, or rediscover, New Orleans’ African American culture.
We welcome school field trips and group tours year-round.
The Backstreet Cultural Museum is located at 1116 Saint Claude Ave., in New Orleans’ historic Tremé neighborhood, near the French Quarter.
