French QuarTour Kids
Thinking you need to keep your kids away from the French Quarter when you come? Think again! For many children and teenagers, French QuarTours is the highlight of their trip to the Big Easy. Four entertaining, teacher-led tours for kids between the ages of 4 and 18 give children an opportunity to explore our rich culture and fascinating traditions in a fun and meaningful way.
On The Creole Kids Tour, your kids will learn about the children who lived in the French Quarter two centuries ago. What did they wear? What did they do in the days before video games and social media? How did they feel about slavery? The Spooky Tour is a kid-friendly ghost hunt that can be dialed up or down depending on who’s taking the tour that day. The Teen Tour is a chance to hear stories of Old New Orleans – about dueling Creole gentlemen, slave auctions, the Battle of New Orleans and more. And on the Music History Tour, tweens and teens get to learn about jazz in its birthplace.
Give your kids a hands-on history lesson they’ll remember for the rest of their lives. (BTW, grownups are welcome to join in on the fun.)
Tours times change depending on the season. Visit FrenchQuarterKidsTours.com for a current schedule.
