In their varied origins and plans, the buildings of The Collection’s museum and research center reflect the architecture of New Orleans and The Collection’s commitment to preserving the French Quarter and its unique structures. Steeped in history, the buildings tell the stories of the generations of men, women, and children whose spirits linger in the books, documents, and images preserved in the rooms and galleries.
