MuleTown is the fascinating story of New Orleans told through the eyes (and long ears) of the mules, horses, and donkeys that have worked beside the people of the city since its beginning. Learn how one of the busiest ports in the world managed it's day to day operations by transporting goods with a team of mules, or how the earlier forms of public transit consisted of a mule-drawn streetcar along St. Charles Avenue toting a heavy number of passengers. Discover the details of how French Quarter residents owned and operated personal carriages throughout the 19th century, and how these animals also assisted us with grieving during funeral processions or reveling during our Carnival and Mardi Gras Celebrations.
MuleTown Tour Participants are granted with the opportunity to visit the oldest operating stable in the city, which was originally a funeral home dating back the 1850s. Tour Participants can meet and interact with the famous carriage mules of the French Quarter and see where they relax in the city.
