The National World War II Museum

Details

The National WWII Museum is now open. Following Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards’ proclamation and New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s safe reopening plan, the Museum will continue to operate at reduced capacity with new safety measures, including timed tickets, social distancing guidelines throughout pavilions and galleries, and enhanced sanitizing and cleaning protocols.

While we are grateful to be open, our priority is the health and safety of our visitors, local community members and our entire Museum family. We’ve carefully developed these new guidelines with the help of more than 20 national organizations, peer institutions across the state and country, the American Alliance of Museums and various local health experts. Our Operations staff have also worked hard to gather necessary safety supplies, including masks, gloves, plexiglass sneeze guards, touchless sanitizing stations and directional signage. These new procedures ensure that we’re meeting the highest public health standards while maintaining the excellence of the Museum’s visitor experience.
