Mardi Gras World Hours

You can experience Mardi Gras World all year because we are open 7 days a week, from 9:00am to 5:30pm, with our first tour beginning at 9:30am and our last tour beginning at 4:30pm. Our Mardi Gras tours begin every half hour, and last for approximately one hour. Holiday Hours: Mardi Gras World is closed on Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter and, of course, Mardi Gras Day. We will close at 2pm (last tour begins at 1pm) on Christmas Eve, as well as the Saturday, Sunday and Monday before Fat Tuesday.

Getting Here

We understand that it can be expensive to travel while sightseeing in New Orleans, so if you don’t have a car or don’t want to pay for parking, let us pick you up: Mardi Gras World offers a complimentary shuttle for people interested in taking our day tour, with designated pick-ups downtown and in the French Quarter. To see shuttle pick-up locations, click the maps on the side panel. The shuttle is very easy to spot because it is covered with photos of Mardi Gras World and has the logo on the side. There are no prearranged pick-ups, so just give us a call when you are at one of the designated spots, and we will quickly pick you up! We are located at 1380 Port of New Orleans Place, on the south end of the Convention Center.

*Not available for Group Tours.

Take the Streetcar

The streetcar is one of New Orleans’ oldest forms of transportation, and is a great way to tour New Orleans when you’re done touring Mardi Gras World. Just hop on a streetcar for a small fee and ride it to the Hilton Riverside Hotel. You can arrange for the shuttle to pick you up right there. It’s a great way to check two special New Orleans experiences off your list!
