Renovations on our building at 818 Howard Avenue have begun! They should take about 12 months and when complete, we will move our newly-created exhibits into our portion of the building the ground floor and the right side of the second floor. The architects and construction crew will be taking care to maintain as much of the beautiful brickwork and exposed ceiling beams as possible.

The building was built in 1916, and removing the original Otis elevator was truly a herculean (or samsonian) task! 

If you are in New Orleans, we may be able to give you a hard-hat tour of the building—just don't wear your best shoes.
