Take a tour of Louis Armstrong's longtime Corona home, which retains the same layout and furniture as it did when the jazz great lived there. The tours, which start every hour on the hour, feature an audio component; visitors can walk through Armstrong's blue 1960s-style kitchen and hear clips of him enjoying a meal with friends, or stand in Satchmo's wood-lined office and recording studio and listen to him practicing. In the warmer months, jazz concerts are held in the museum's Japanese-inspired garden.
