Education is an important part of the mission of Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses and we offer a wide range of educational programming for youth and families.  We are frequently out in the community, through events such as Spring Heritage Day, at Destrehan Plantation, the Girl Scouts BIG Day at the University of New Orleans, kids crafts at Satchmo Fest, every summer, and more!  We offer on-site youth programming through our Courtyard Camps in the summer, fall, and winter, and welcome many school field trips throughout the year.  For more information about our School click HERE or contact education@hgghh.org.

Courtyard Camp

Explore 19th-century life in New Orleans through crafts, games, and project-based learning at the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses. Campers garner a better understanding of the past by exploring two historic houses in the French Quarter, cooking over an open-hearth, making 19th-century home remedies, and writing and performing their own scripts set in post-bellum New Orleans.
