When you tour New Orleans homes for sale, you're in the midst of one of America's truly unique hubs of culture. With its rich musical heritage, delicious food, and unmistakable French influences, our real estate agents are confident you'll have many reasons to fall in love.
New Orleans is known as the birthplace of jazz. Between New Orleans open houses, you should make time to visit one of the area's foremost institutions: The New Orleans Jazz Museum. Established back in 1961 and occupying the Old U.S. Mint Building, it seeks to conserve and share the history of jazz.
There's always something new to see, hear, and do at the New Orleans Jazz Museum. Volunteers and staff keep up a busy calendar of events all through the year, and it's not too late to get in on the action.
Let's visit the museum and see some of its upcoming events:
- Jazz Yoga
Jazz Yoga is one of the most popular events held at the New Orleans Jazz Museum and runs nearly every week – often twice a week. For example, you can catch it on Saturday, November 12, in the morning or Tuesday, November 15 in the afternoon. Participants of all backgrounds are welcome to enjoy jazz, meditation, and mindfulness. To get the most from the experience, bring your own yoga mat.
- Arrowhead Jazz Band
Presented by the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park, the Arrowhead Jazz Band will be performing on Tuesday, November 22, between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. – a truly unique live jazz experience.

In a fun-packed hour, they'll share a lively musical experience of New Orleans jazz, along with blues, gospel, and more.
