Description

The Louis Armstrong House Museum tells the story of the meteoric ride of one of the greatest musicians of our time. All of its furnishings are original and have been preserved, giving visitors the feeling that Louis & Lucille just stepped out for a minute. The museum conducts guided house tours and features new exhibitions each season. Thanks to Louis's home-recorded private tapes, visitors can hear Louis at home playing his trumpet, telling jokes, eating dinner, and more! It’s an intimate visit as if you can sit down and have a cup of coffee with Satchmo himself. The museum owns the largest publicly held collection in the world devoted to a jazz musician. It’s a National Historic Landmark & a NYC Landmark.
