Mardi Gras World

A great way to spend a couple of hours! Take the free Canal Street ferry in the French Quarter to Historic Old Algiers, then hop the shuttle bus to the museum.

Browse the shop until your group is ushered into the costume room, then have fun trying on costumes and masks. This is a great photo opportunity. A short movie about how the floats are made is then shown.

Continue on to the float storage area where you will be given coffee and King Cake. The person who finds the doll in their piece of cake wins a free prize!

Then you are guided through the warehouse to view the floats. Wander through after the tour to take photos, then catch the shuttle van back to the dock.
