Touring Satchmo's Home
Visitors must take a guided tour to see the Louis Armstrong House Museum. Tours last 40 minutes and begin every hour on the hour with the last one starting at 4p.m.
Visitors will experience both levels of the home as well as the exhibit area on the main level (which features a small selection of Louis Armstrong memorabilia including photos, clothing and some of his trumpets) and the couple’s lovely Japanese-inspired garden, which can be explored before or after the tour. The museum also houses a gift store.
he second level of the home requires that visitors climb a steep staircase. (A virtual tour is available for those unable to manage the steps.) Those planning to visit with a group of more than eight people are asked to register in advance; a group tour request form is available at the Louis Armstrong House Museum official website. Teacher’s kits can also be downloaded from the site for school groups visiting the museum.
