For all lovers of Louis Armstrong and musical culture, this place is inevitable!
The Louis Armstrong House Museum is a little-known sight in a remote section of Queens, but it's worth a look for anyone interested in the musical legacy this artist has left us.
Louis Armstrong's house is part of the history of black American music. It is with immense pleasure, but also an admiring apprehension, that we revisit the history of jazz. Before your eyes, the desk on which were composed so many trumpet masterpieces. We discover his memories brought back from all over the world, the delicious extravagances of his wife Lucille and many anecdotes about the hectic life of this great jazz man. During the visit, you will also have the opportunity to admire and stroll in the magnificent garden of the house. A place full of emotions to discover!
