813 Bienville St French Quarter

A museum in a restaurant? New Orleans is one of very few cities old enough, with restaurants old enough to house a museum!Inside the Arnaud's Restaurant is the Germaine Wells Mardi Gras museum. Germaine Wells reigned as queen over more Mardi Gras balls than any other woman in the history of Carnival. View more than two dozen mardi gras costumes, including Wells' and "Count" Arnaud's. 

View this collection free of charge during restaurant hours any day of the week.
