Free museum admission today in New Orleans

It’s Museum Day (Sept. 28, 2013) and several museums in New Orleans are waiving admission – but you have to print a ticket via the Smithsonian’s website.



Important – the ticket is good for two people only. If you have more than two people (group of friends), make sure people print their own tickets.

Participating museums in New Orleans:

  • Contemporary Arts Center
  • Hermann-Grima Historic House
  • Longue Vue House and Gardens
  • Louisiana Children’s Museum
  • New Orleans Museum of Art
  • The Historic New Orleans Collection
  • The National WWII Museum
  • The Ogden Museum of Southern Art

Not sure what everything is? We weren’t either. Thanks to for doing an explanation of the venues.

Here’s list of all the participating museums in Louisiana.

For Museum Day, you get a ticket for two people only. You must print your ticket and present it to receive your free admission. Some places, like the WW2 Museum, will accept a ticket on your smartphone.
