The NYC landmark is adding new concerts and exhibits.
The end of summer and the beginning of fall usher in some of the best months to discover all the things to do in Queens. The Louis Armstrong House Museum is a great year-round family-friendly attraction in Queens.
This landmark Queens' museum is continually coming up with new exhibits, which celebrate and educate the whole family on the rich cultural legacy of Satchmo's brilliant life. It has been designated as a National Historic Landmark as well as a New York City Landmark. The school group tours offered by the museum meet New York State and New York City Learning Standards. Family members of all ages will enjoy expanding their cultural knowledge and appreciation.
The museum also hosts concert events throughout the year, and they have added another great concert for the end of August. The Queens Jazz Heritage Concert with Dennis Lichtman and his Queensboro Six takes place Saturday, August 29, 2015. This concert celebrates many of the borough's pioneers of jazz. The sounds of Billie Holiday, Fats Waller, Clarence Williams, Benny Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Bix Biederbecke and John Coltrane will be featured as well as a tribute to the immortal Satchmo's legacy. The magic of the downbeat starts at 2 p.m., and the afternoon will be swinging.
Another special exhibit is running now through October 4. Red Beans and Ricely Yours: Louis Armstrong and Food shares Satchmo's great love of fabulous cuisine. You will see some of Lucille's special recipes, photographs, menus and other souvenirs from around the world.
