A great get-away tour that is self-directed, so you don't feel rushed and can take lots of pictures. I live here, but bring visitors all the time who simply LOVE it!

First visit was in 2017 and it was good. On our second visit last week the place is run down. I felt bad for the people working in the warehouse. We chose to go on a rainy day and the water was coming in allover the building. Everything was covered in dust and cobwebs. Employees were nice, but definitely not the same experience.

The warehouse was neat and the video at the beginning was informative. King cake was yummy and unexpected. Gift shop and view of Mississippi from patio was nice, too. Main bummer was that Groupon advertised that this came with a one hour guided tour, but actually you’re just shown a video then allowed to walk through warehouse on your own. Also, you’re can’t climb floats like it shows on picture.
