Fodor's Review

For the last 28 years of his life the famed jazz musician lived in this modest three-story house in Corona with his wife Lucille. Take a 40-minute guided tour, and note the difference between the rooms vividly decorated by Lucille in charming midcentury style and Louis's dark den, cluttered with phonographs and reel-to-reel tape recorders. Although photographs and family mementos throughout the house impart knowledge about Satchmo's life, it's in his den that you really begin to understand his spirit. Exclusive to the museum, guests can also tune in to intimate audio clips of Louis playing the trumpet or telling jokes on his home-recorded private tapes. The museum also hosts Armstrong-related special events and a "Hot Jazz / Cool Garden" summer concert series; check their website for details.
