Travel lovers are likely over the moon about the world reopening, and so is HISTORY Travel™. The partnership of A&E Networks, The HISTORY Channel and Academic Travel Abroad, is a rollout of a series of travel experiences to a range of destinations all over the world. Every trip is designed by world-class historians and local experts so you get insight into each destination’s history.
“Jazz in New Orleans” will be one of the first of many of the tour experiences and it’s taking place November 14-18, 2022 and March 20-24, 2023. That trip is a journey into New Orleans’ rich musical history through monumental sites. For instance, travelers will have a customized walking tour to Louis Armstrong Park’s Congo Square, get a behind-the-scenes view of the Jazz Museum, and experience an exclusive cooking demonstration on Algiers Island. Historian Dina M. Bennett will be guiding this tour and she’s the director of curatorial affairs at the American Jazz Museum.
