Itinerary:

Arrive at the Louis Armstrong House Museum, where Jazz History comes to life in Corona.  Louis Armstrong, the world’s most famous jazz musician, was an international celebrity who could have lived anywhere.  Yet in 1943, he and his wife, Lucille, settled in a modest house in Corona, Queens, where they lived for the remainder of their lives. No one has lived in the house since the Armstrong’s, and the house and its furnishings remain very much as they were during Louis and Lucille’s lifetime. Today, the Louis Armstrong House Museum is open to the public, offering guided tours of Louis’s longtime home. On the tour, audio clips from Louis’s homemade recordings are played, and visitors hear Louis practicing his trumpet, enjoying a meal, or talking with his friends. Visitors also get to enjoy an exhibit on Louis’s life and legacy, and the Armstrong’s beautiful Japanese-inspired garden.

12:30pm       

After our visit, we will enjoy lunch at Barossa in Regal Park, followed by an afternoon of additional sightseeing.
