Warehouse District

The Warehouse District is also the Arts District. Today, more than 25 galleries call the area home. Most are located on Julia Street, which is also the scene of an evening gallery hop that hosts a mix of art lovers and socialites on the first Saturday night of every month. The Warehouse District is the place for museums! The National World War II Museum, one of the most popular attractions in New Orleans that has brought in over 2 million visitors, features an ever-expanding exhibit space where war veterans are on hand to give tours, answer questions or just to talk with the many visitors. Louisiana’s Civil War Museum, The Children’s Museum and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art make the Arts District the place to go to learn about the history and culture of New Orleans and Louisiana. Dining and music are attractions in the area, for both tourists and locals. The original Emeril's was one of the first to call the Arts District home over a decade ago. Now diners can enjoy many options: Peche, August, Compare Lapin, and Herbsaint to name a few. Music venues like Howlin’ Wolf and The Republic bring legendary as well as up-and-coming artists that draw in huge crowds for an evening of live entertainment.
