There are plenty of tours in New Orleans, but only the Mardi Gras World tour offers a real, behind-the-scenes look at how Mardi Gras is made. Our knowledgeable guides take the mask off Mardi Gras with an all-access tour, winding through the massive studio where these magnificent floats are built from the ground up. The hour long tour is fun for all ages and with our convenient shuttle service, transportation to our facility is easy from top tourist destinations. Unlike many attractions in the city, we are open 7 days a week and are completely indoors- perfect for that rainy day. Come learn about what makes New Orleans famous: Mardi Gras!

Activity Highlights
→ Behind-the-scenes look at New Orleans Mardi Gras
→ Free slice of King Cake
→ Our attraction includes complimentary shuttle transportation to and from our facility
→ Enjoy a beautiful view of the Mississippi River on our relaxing Plaza Area

    Fascinating Place to Visit

    If one can't attend the real deal, at least touring Mardi Gras World gives you a sense of what the event is all about. The staff have great stories to share and the history behind the scenes is very interesting. We also got to see some of the artists at work on new parade creations and that was fun.

    Mardi Gras World

    The warehouse was absolutely awesome! They should skip the video portion in the beginning and just provide guests with more time to take pictures throughout the warehouse.

    Average Experience

    If you can ride a shuttle bus, I suggest you ride a shuttle bus. Because pay $10 for couple hours only, it's unworthy. The video was awesome. The best part for the whole program. The tour was okay, need a better tour guide. The exhibition room was extremely hot. We were melting away. The exhibition arts were gorgeous and interesting.
