Explore the Intimate Life of Louis Armstrong at this Historic Exhibit
Take an up-close look at the life of the Jazz pioneer Louis Armstrong at the Louis Armstrong House and Museum! The New York house where this jazz legend lived and died is now a tribute to his life and legacy, inviting you to explore the pristinely preserved home with a guided tour showcasing the life of this iconic artist.
In 1943 Louis Armstrong purchased a modest-size house in Corona with his wife, Lucille, and lived there until his death in 1971. It now serves as the Louis Armstrong House and Museum, with fascinating exhibits and treasured artifacts that rival the largest public jazz archives in the world! The museum's collection includes homemade reel-to-reel recordings, rare photographs, letters and manuscripts, and Armstrong's own instruments including five trumpets and 14 mouthpieces.
Still furnished as it was when the Armstrongs lived there, the house also has the couple's paintings and artwork on view and their coveted Japanese-inspired garden. Guided tours start every hour on the hour and are offered every day the house is open, giving you a rare look at the inner life of this Jazz innovator! Come discover the intimate sanctuary of Armstrong’s home and learn all about his singular accomplishments and contributions to the world of jazz. It’s all available at the Louis Armstrong House and Museum!
