Le Musée de f.p.c.

Be sure to include this gem in your tour of New Orleans, situated along the gracious Esplanade Avenue and filled with four rooms of manuscripts, paintings, and works of art that help explain the history of the influential free people of color whose presence was recorded in New Orleans as early as 1722. Greek Revival style architecture and the gorgeous greenery contribute to the romantic and intimate feel of the house, where very knowledgeable docents tell the story of the people who walked these neighborhood streets during the antebellum period.

The holdings at this museum are rare and rich, and your guide will contextualize this unique local history within the broader history of the United States. Learn the complex and compelling narratives that can change your perspective on race relations through the empowering voices of those who have gone before us in this French-Spanish-American city of the south.

With a focus on the accomplishments and contributions of the free people of color, you’ll see and understand the deeply rooted, rich African culture of today. Be inspired, learn some history, and enjoy the peaceful and gorgeous setting of this one-of-a-kind museum away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city.
