Mission Statement

Inspired by our humanitarian and artistic legacy, Longue Vue’s mission is to be a leader in the advancement of innovative thought, creative expression and life-long learning, and to engage our resources and exceptional setting to stimulate discussion and action on issues of social justice and community responsibility.

Description

Longue Vue House and Gardens, located in New Orleans at 7 Bamboo Road, is an eight-acre Country Place Era estate comprised of a Classical Revival-style house museum surrounded by 14 different gardens, including an interactive children’s garden. It is the former home of philanthropists Edith and Edgar Stern, who were known nationally for their innovative approach to leadership in cultural preservation, social justice, education, the arts, and government. Longue Vue now serves as an educational and cultural resource for the public, offering daily tours and hosting numerous events centered around design, preservation, gardening, architecture, and engagement that sustain its mission "to preserve and use the historical and artistic legacy of Longue Vue and its creators to educate and inspire people to pursue beauty and civic responsibility in their lives." Longue Vue, a designated National Historic Landmark, is accredited by the American Association of Museums and is included on the National Register of Historic Places. Longue Vue is open from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. Tuesday through Saturday and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Sunday. For more information, call 504.488.5488 or visit us at www.longuevue.com.
