Degas House Tours
French impressionist painter Edgar Degas is synonymous with late 19th-century Paris, but another city also influenced his work: New Orleans. The place he once lived on Esplanade Avenue, the Degas House is now a museum dedicated to the painter that allows visitors to get a glimpse of the studio where he worked and get a feel for life in the Big Easy in the 1870s.
Address: 2306 Esplanade Ave, New Orleans, LA 70119, USA
