Jazz Gem in Corona

The Louis Armstrong House Museum welcomes everyone in for a personal tour of his life and accomplishments at the house he shared with his wife, Lucille, in Corona.

Personal written letters, videos and other trinkets are found throughout the museum. The main entrance consists of souvenirs of mugs, postcards, T-shirts and albums.

The jazz icon made a tremendous impact on the world, especially in Queens. Armstrong took care of local residences’ mortgages, the neighborhood’s college and gave money to those who needed it most.
