Join The Historic New Orleans Collection for both international study tours and regional trips.


International Study Tours

The Palaces and Villas of Spain
Madrid and Seville • March 28–April 6, 2022

In October 2022, The Historic New Orleans Collection will present the new, original exhibition Spanish New Orleans and the Caribbean, and in anticipation of this show, THNOC’s next international study tour will explore Spain. The 10-day trip includes visits to museums of all sizes, from the Prado and the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum to the Museo Cerralbo and the Lázaro Galdiano Museum, as well as excursions to beautiful royal palaces and three private historic residences. Throughout the experience, participants will see prized examples of Islamic-influenced lusterware, Sevillian polychrome painted flat tiles, treasures of the royal factories of Buen Retiro (porcelain) and La Granja (glassware), and examples of the jeweler’s art enriched by gold, silver, and precious stones from Spain’s American colonies.

All of THNOC’s international study tours include luxury accommodations and exclusive activities related to the institution’s mission. Priority registration is offered to members of THNOC’s Laussat Society and Bienville Circle. A PDF with the full itinerary of the 2022 trip to Spain is available for download.

No regional study tours are currently available at this time, but we encourage you to check back for new opportunities.

Like the international tours, priority registration is offered to members of THNOC’s Laussat Society and Bienville Circle.
