Where does the Ungrateful Dead Cemetery Tour start?

The Ungrateful Dead Tour starts in front of the Mardi Gras Museum of Costumes & Culture, which is located at 1010 Conti St, in the French Quarter. THIS TOUR DOES NOT START AT THE CEMETERY. Your Tour Guide will be waiting for you directly in front of the Museum.

If you are running late or need additional directions please call our office toll-free at 888-859-5375.


Parking in the French Quarter is at a premium. While you can take a chance and try for on-street parking, we highly suggest that you walk to the starting location of The Ungrateful Dead. The Mardi Gras Museum of Costumes & Culture and the cemetery are a quick 10-minute walk from almost anywhere in the French Quarter. You can also take a cab or a pedicab.
