The newest addition to New Orleans’ collection of museums,  the Irish Cultural Museum, pays tribute to the many sacrifices and accomplishments of our Irish ancestors. The Irish are remembered in a big way every year on St. Patrick’s day with parades and green beer but the real story behind this people and their great impact on our wonderful city can be learned throughout the year at this boutique museum in the historic French Quarter. If you are interested in uncovering the background behind the historic Irish Channel neighborhood, or the famed architect James Gallier, an Irish descendant, or even the delicious Irish coffee found in many local bars and restaurants, then definitely make it a point to stop by this learning center!
