EXPERIENCE NEW ORLEANS FROM HOME
Even though we will not be in New Orleans in July, this year's AALL Local Arrangements Committee has compiled this helpful list of items to help you experience New Orleans from your home. There are recipes from New Orleans restaurants, southern Louisiana cookbooks and recipes, and places where you can purchase specialty Louisiana products.
There is also a list of museums and attractions that offer virtual tours and a Spotify playlist containing songs and artists that are Louisiana originals from New Orleans jazz, funk, and bounce to Cajun zydeco and Swamp pop along with mainstream hits by Louisianans.

The Historic New Orleans Collection You can substitute a virtual tour of the HNOC for the planned tour. Virtual tours include Louisiana in Film, Storyville, and Purchased Lives: New Orleans and the Domestic Slave Trade.
National WWII Museum was another planned tour destination. You can listen to oral histories and podcasts and look at information about some of the exhibits.
New Orleans Jazz Museum has photos and audio of vintage New Orleans jazz and blues musicians.
Studio Be is in warehouse and houses art about the oppression of black and brown people and those who have fought against that oppression throughout history.
Whitney Plantation is the only historic former plantation site in Louisiana with an exclusive focus on the lives of enslaved people.
If art is your preference, locals enjoy the Besthoff Sculpture Garden adjacent to the New Orleans Museum of Art in City Park. Check out NOMA’s site for a virtual tour and links to YouTube videos. The Ogden Museum of Southern Art also hosts virtual tours and talks. The Newcomb Art Museum is located on Tulane University’s campus.
Be in Louisiana wherever you are. Listen to this Spotify playlist created by the LSU Law Library. The songs and artists are Louisiana originals from New Orleans jazz, funk, and bounce to Cajun zydeco and Swamp pop along with mainstream hits by Louisianans.
