Louis Armstrong House Museum

The Louis Armstrong House Museum holds several Collections of photographs, sound recordings, letters, manuscripts, instruments, and artifacts. And it's all available to the public.

Called "the largest publicly held archival collection in the world devoted to a jazz musician" by author Terry Teachout of the Wall Street Journal, the Museum Collections can be browsed in the Online Catalog, or studied on-site. We also welcome Photo Requests from exhibitors, publishers, and other media outlets.

The Louis Armstrong House was the home of Louis Armstrong and his wife Lucille between 1943 and 1971 when he died. Lucille gave it to the city in order to create a museum focused on her husband. It was designated a New York City Landmark in 1988 and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1976.
