Louis Armstrong House and Archives [NY]

In 1943, Louis Armstrong and his wife, Lucille, settled in a modest house in Corona, Queens, where they lived for the remainder of their lives. Today, the furnishings and the house are preserved very much as they were during the Armstrongs’ lifetime.

Today, visitors are offered guided 40-minute tours, as well as occasional special events. Group tours (8 or more) must be scheduled in advance. The museum also holds several collections of artifacts that are available to researchers by appointment. The website offers visitor information, information regarding upcoming events and current exhibits, and a biography of Louis Armstrong. In order to contact the house via email, use the "contact" link located under the "about us" tab.
