Located in the heart of New Orleans French Quarter, the park's primary visitor center is located at 916 N. Peters Street and is a good starting point to learn about our diverse opportunities to learn about the history and culture of New Orleans jazz. Ranger-led demonstrations, talks, video documentaries and live music are held at both our visitor center and the Old U.S. Mint five days a week. Stop by and listen for awhile. The Old U. S. Mint, located at 400 Esplanade Avenue, features a world class performance venue and jazz museum on the second and third floors.
