The New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park is located within the Louis Armstrong Park while the headquarters are located nearby in the French Quarter District of New Orleans. The Park celebrates the origins and evolution of jazz music. Live music is the overarching appeal of the Park, with daily concerts and monthly jazz festivals. Interpretive programs are impressive and include ranger led music demonstrations, as well as local volunteer musician demonstrations.
The Park continues to grow with both local financial support and increased cultural richness. In the near future, the Park Service plans to create a world class New Orleans Jazz Museum in partnership with the Louisiana State Museum.
