Louis Armstrong House Museum

Inside The Life And Work Of A Jazz Legend
Louis Armstrong House Museum - New York
The legacy of the legendary jazz legend Louis Armstrong, is preserved at this Queens museum.

Louis Armstrong, arguably the most famous jazz musician of all time, had a 50 year long career. He appeared in film and television, wrote books and letters, and wooed music lovers one performance at a time. In 1943, he moved to quiet Corona, Queens with his wife, Lucille. Having already achieved international fame, Armstrong could have lived anywhere in the world; still, he chose the modest brick house.

After his death in 1971, his home became The Louis Armstrong House Museum. The house and furnishing remains almost exactly as they were. Through its preservation, it sustains and promotes his cultural, historical, and humanitarian impact.

Today, the Louis Armstrong House Museum is open to the public as a museum that documents Armstrong’s life and legacy. Visitors can experience concerts, listen to lectures, view film screenings, and explore archival materials. Additionally, guest can take guided tours of the house, while listening to Louis’s homemade recordings; this includes his trumpet practice, chatting over a meal, or relaxing with friends. On the grounds, visitors can also enjoy the Armstrong’s beautiful Japanese-inspired garden.

On July 17th, 2017, The Louis Armstrong Education Center had its groundbreaking across the street from the house of the New Orleans native. The Education Center will house 1600 recording, 5,000 photographs, manuscripts, awards, and five of his trumpets, in addition to a 68 seat jazz club for concerts.

Whether or not you are a fan, the Louis Armstrong House Museum seeks to educate and inspire people of all ages, origins, and locations, just as Louis did.
