1317 Tupelo Street. Small museum dedicated to local Mardi Gras Indians and Second Line culture. Curator Ronald W. Lewis has interesting stories. Open by appointment only; contact in advance. Dan Baum's critically acclaimed book, "NIne Lives, Death and Life in New Orleans", which spans the 40 year history between Hurricane Betsy and Katrina, appropriately begins and ends with Ronald Lewis. If you are coming to New Orleans to just drink on Bourbon Street, there is no need to stop here. If you are coming to find a piece of the puzzle that makes The Big E what it is, Ronald's museum and history are worth an hour or two of your time. Have him sign your "Nine Lives" and consider purchasing his own wonderfully documented history of Mardi Gras and the Mardi Gras Indians with help from Neighborhood Story Project. Good stuff.
