“Home of Some of the Biggest Floats in the World!”
Mardi Gras World is the most unique attraction in America’s most uniquely attractive city. It’s a world of wonders, created for you by the people who bring Mardi Gras to life every year—the artists of Blaine Kern Studios. The colors, the lights, the music, the joie de vivre. It’s all here in one magical place where you can peek behind the curtain and see Mardi Gras in the making. You haven’t truly experienced Carnival until you’ve explored Mardi Gras World. Since 1947, Blaine Kern Studios has been as much a part of Carnival as the parades New Orleans loves. In fact, we create most of those parades, from concept through completion. We’re the world’s leading makers of floats, sculpture and props. Take an exclusive tour of New Orleans’ main attraction, as Mardi Gras World gives you a rare behind-the-scenes look at the magic of Mardi Gras. Since 1947, Blaine Kern Studios has built the breathtaking parade floats that make Carnival the greatest show on Earth!
It gives a lot of the history of Mardi Gras. I personally (a freshman in college who has studied French for 5 years) enjoyed it and found it not only educational but also fantastic to see the detail in the works. On the other hand my younger sister who is 16 was kind of bored. side note: you actually get to see people working on pieces for the upcoming year!
So great! A behind-the-scenes look at the Mardi Gras industry with excellent photo opportunities and a nice gift shop. I recommend to everyone taking a family trip to NOLA.
Fun! It's a huge open warehouse and it I s hot but we all enjoyed it a lot. Beautiful art work and we learned about the history of Mardi Gras.
This is a great behind the scenes tour to Mardi Gras. Gives lots of history plus shares how the floats are made. Very cool to see the work in progress even 8 months before Mardi Gras.
