About New Orleans Jazz Park Information

New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park hosts live world-class jazz and musical concerts at the Old U.S. Mint venue.

New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park was established to celebrate the origins and evolution of America's most widely recognized indigenous musical art form. A story rich with innovation, experimentation, controversy and emotion, the park provides an ideal setting to share the cultural history of the people and places that helped shape the development and progression of jazz in New Orleans.

Through interpretive techniques designed to educate and entertain, New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park seeks to preserve information and resources associated with the origins and early development of jazz in the city widely recognized as its birthplace.
