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!

Review of Mardi Gras World Admission

  • Shelley Huntsville, Alabama, USA Mar 17 2017 10:40pm

    Mardi Gras World was fun and very informative. We enjoyed seeing the floats and artifacts up close as well as work in progress. 2-3 hours is all you need from start to finish.

    Interesting but to hot to enjoy

    It was so HOT we got sick. We should have been told that there would not be air conditioning before we bought the tickets.

    Hi Trina, Summers are definitely hot in New Orleans and our vendors do their very best to provide comfort for their customers. Mardi Gras World actually does have air conditioning and fans to circulate, however whenever the artists are shaping the fiberglass the warehouse doors have to be left open for ventilation. The dangers from the fumes can be dangerous, so they do have your best interests in mind. I hope you were still able to enjoy some of your time there, but if there is anything further I can assist with please feel free to contact me. Best regards, TripShock! Guest Service Manager

    nice tour

    The only suggestion I would make is that there wasn't enough time to look at the finished floats. Other than that it was very good.

    Informative

    Saw the workings of the Mardi Gras floats. Artists are very creative. Shuttle was a perk. Not interactive. Would have enjoyed creating something. Better video—more description needed
