  • Louis Armstrong House Museum
    The house where jazz legend Louis Armstrong lived and died is now a tribute to his life and legacy. The Louis Armstrong House Museum, still furnished as it was when Louis and his wife, Lucille, lived there, lets viewers peek into the intimate life of the couple, while its collection pays tribute to his public accomplishments and contributions to the world of jazz. One current highlight at the museum is a trove of photos by Jack Bradley, whose longtime friendship with Armstrong allowed him to amass an incredible collection of pictures showing Satchmo in his private life and as a performer. In addition to the images, the exhibition includes sound recordings, correspondence and minutiae like receipts that offer a peek into the musician's day-to-day existence.
