In a city that celebrates like no other, the Backstreet Cultural Museum gives visitors the opportunity to explore the unique history and cultural significance of distinctively New Orleans' traditions that tourists rarely get to see. Intricate displays offer visitors insight into Jazz Funerals, Mardi Gras Indians, and Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs. Housed in a former Funeral Home in the Treme neighborhood, the oldest African-American neighborhood in the United States, the Backstreet Cultural Museum showcases these rich New Orleans traditions with the city's largest collection of hand-made, vibrantly colored beaded and feathered Mardi Gras Indian Costumes as well as an impressive library of memorabilia, still photos, and video footage of Jazz Funerals, Second-line Parades, and backstreet Mardi Gras Celebrations.
