In the 19th century, Esplanade Avenue in New Orleans where Degas House is located was an important route for trade. It also functioned as a “Millionaire’s Row” for the Louisiana Creole section of the city. Today it is a beautiful oak tree lined avenue which runs from the Mississippi River to Carrollton Avenue at City Park.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. At Degas House, we couldn’t agree more. Naturally, we decided to celebrate the meal with our original “Breakfast and the Tour” special.
At Degas House, we are in no position to argue with the French Impressionist Master. In celebration of the soothing and blissful nature of amateur painting, the Degas House proudly presents our "Painting with Passion" program.
Educational field trips are offered to school groups at Degas House. Students will experience and understand the personal side of the great French Impressionist Master, Edgar Degas. Activities for 2nd - 12th grades available.
"Draw lines, young man, and still more lines, both from life and from memory, and you will become a good artist."
