The Historic New Orleans Collection

The Historic New Orleans Collection

The Historic New Orleans Collection (THNOC) is a history museum dedicated to preserving the culture of New Orleans and the Gulf South. Since its founding in 1966, the organization has grown to include 13 historic buildings across three French Quarter campuses. This fall, THNOC is bringing a full slate of programming, including two new photography exhibitions, a symposium and a dinner on the history of wine in New Orleans. Details about THNOC’s original exhibitions, guided tours, research center, educational experiences and publishing initiatives are available online


THNOC offers several avenues for the public to give, beginning with its membership community. Members of THNOC receive free tours, invitations to special events, the quarterly magazine and discounts on purchases from the museum shop and café. It also encourages standalone donations through honorary and/or tribute gifts, planned giving or material donations, as well as gift memberships. Volunteers are also needed year-round.
