Warehouse District

As our hotel was located in the warehouse district, so we explored our neighbourhood one morning and loved it! The warehouse district was originally established as an industrial area in the 19th century to store grain, coffee and produce shipped through the Port of New Orleans. The transformation into today's arts district began in 1976 with the opening of the Contemporary Arts Center and many artists and galleries followed as well as museums that newly opened in the area like the National World War II Museum which is the largest of the museums in this area. Restaurants and bars followed and you have a great selection of venues to choose from nowadays.
