The Catholic Cultural Center Museum on the grounds of the Old Ursuline Convent in the French Quarter is one of the newest museums in the oldest colonial building in the Mississippi Valley. It was dedicated in October 2004, and we visited New Orleans in December 2004. I took the picture from the bus, but my energy didn't extend to actually going here.

In the early days of the colony and city, there was no idea of separation of church and state. So this museum explores the early history of Catholicism and New Orleans. In addition to the Old Ursuline Convent and convent gardens at Chartres and Ursulines, St. Louis Cathedral at Jackson Square and historic St. Mary Church, adjacent to the Convent are part of the Catholic Culture and Heritage network of properties which are open to the public Tuesdays through Sundays

Address: 1100 Chartres St.
