The Flooded House Museum is now open to the public in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans. The first visitors were welcomed on Saturday to the brick house on Warrington Drive It's on display to demonstrate the damages that many homes sustained in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the flooding of 80% of the city due to levee failures.

While you can only peek inside the windows of the home to survey the replica damages of the storm, there are plans to allow people inside in the future.
