The Backstreet Cultural Museum

Located in downtown New Orleans, the Backstreet Cultural Museum features a vast display of Mardi Gras Indian costumes, cultural artifacst, and photographs. The museum was founded by Sylvester Francis when he began taking photographs of Carnival celebrations, jazz funerals and parades in the late 1960's.

Throughout the years, the museum grew and relocated into the former Rhodes Funeral Home. Stroll through the museum to see one of the world's most comprehensive collections of African American cultural items, of this kind. The museum also hosts many events throughout the year.
