Flooded House Museum

Field review by the editors.

New Orleans, Louisiana

After Hurricane Katrina flooded this suburban neighborhood On September 2, 2005, the future Flooded House Museum was just a flooded house. A local group purchased the gutted home, restored it, filled it with donated furniture, and then "distressed" it -- using theater art and scenic design techniques -- to make it look the way it did in Katrina's aftermath. The one-of-a-kind project took many years; the Museum didn't open until March 23, 2019.

The Flooded House Museum was designed for the public like a giant diorama; visitors can't enter the building, but they can stand outside and peer through the windows at the destroyed furniture and moldy walls.
