  • Louis Armstrong House Museum
    34-56 107th St., 718-478-8274
    In 1943, Louis Armstrong purchased this modest-size house in Corona with his wife, Lucille, and lived there until his death, in 1971. It now serves as a museum that honors and preserves the jazz legend's legacy. Among the largest public jazz archives in the world, the museum's collection includes homemade reel-to-reel recordings, photographs, letters and manuscripts, and Armstrong's own instruments (among them, five trumpets and 14 mouthpieces). Still furnished as it was when the Armstrongs lived there, the house also has the couple's paintings and artwork on view and, out back, a Japanese-inspired garden. Guided house tours start on the hour and are offered every day except Mondays. Although the institution closes for major holidays, it's always open on July 4, in honor of Armstrong's birthday.
