Situated in a former home in a residential section of the 9th ward, the scant few rooms of this modest museum hold a world of insight. The moving oral histories, exhibits, and videos (and often, the people here) tell the story of this area—not just of the levee failure and its devastation but of the centuries leading up to it—and why all are so deeply intertwined. It’s illuminating, thought-provoking, and as relevant now as ever. If you are interested in this area and its people, this museum is a must.
