It opened Wednesday, January 13 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Its displays will cover cocktail history and milestones, such as the first time the term was used in print to describe a mixed alcoholic drink.

The museum occupies the second floor of the Pharmacy Museum, at 514 Chartres Street in the French Quarter.

Dale DeGroff, universally acknowledged as the world’s premier mixologist, and formerly chief bartender at the Rainbow Room atop New York’s Rockefeller Center, is a founder and president of the nonprofit institution.

In addition to its displays and exhibits, the museum plans to offer monthly seminars and classes.

Museum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday; tel: 504-565-8027. Admission: $5 for adults; $4 seniors & students; children under six: free.
