Degas House – Art Bed and Breakfast

Museums are very beautiful places where you can admire the things from the past, tings that are very well kept and that were touched by people at least a hundred years ago. But you are only a visitor there, you watch, see and go. What would you say if you had the chance to rent a room that was designed just like one a century old? Well, I know I would be excited. But I have just found out that other people had this idea, too, and they made it come true. Thos who take care of Edgar Degas Memorial House in New Orleans have found an incredible way of making money: they rent the second and third floor of the building where the memorial is located and they keep the rooms with the exact atmosphere of the days when the famous Impressionist lived there.

The Inn (bed and breakfast) has a very authentic interior design and all the rooms , though reconditioned and provided with modern means of heating and lighting, keeps the general atmosphere of the time when Degas lived and painted there. You can admire over eighty reproductions of Degas’ works all over the Inn, on the walls and you can enjoy finding out the history of the place.
