ArmstrongThe house of the trumpet player Louis Armstrong, aka Satchmo, is re-opened as a restored museum. The new facility, located in Queens, New York serves a memory to the jazz great.

The home was originally occupied by Armstrong and Lucille (his wife) from 1943 until 1971. After his death, the residence was purchased and become a National Historic Landmark.

The new museum, called the Louis Armstrong House Museum, retains original (and some restored) interiors and also holds recordings of the artist and other relics. Should Jazz Lovers take a trip to New York City, it should be noted that the home is opened to the public and tours are provided.
