With power restored and campus cleanup well underway following Hurricane Ida, The National WWII Museum will reopen to the public on Monday, September 13, 2021.
We are grateful to our dedicated staff who have kept the campus safe, protected our collection and exhibits, continued to perform essential Museum operations during our closure, and prepared the Museum to be in a position to reopen safely and effectively. Thanks also to all of the electrical crews, many of whom have traveled from across the country, to restore power to the City of New Orleans and surrounding region--a key driver of our recovery.
As a symbol of gratitude, the Museum will offer free admission to electrical employees, first-responders, National Guard, and emergency personnel throughout September. Additionally, the Museum will continue its tradition of offering half-off admission to Louisiana residents this month and will extend that promotion through the end of October. Visitors are encouraged to reserve their Museum tickets online in advance.
We are also pleased to share that both Provisions marketplace and Rosie's on the Roof are now open and serving food and beverages in The Higgins Hotel & Conference Center. Provisions is open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily and Rosie's on the Roof is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Jeri Nims Soda Shop will reopen to the public starting on Monday, September 13 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cafe Normandie will reopen to the public starting on Monday, September 13 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. As a reminder, COVID-19 protocols are still in place throughout the Museum, Hotel, and its food and beverage outlets per City of New Orleans mandates. Our Know Before You Go webpage outlines the latest COVID guidelines and what to expect when visiting.
If you have already have reservations and would like to reschedule, or to receive a refund, please contact us at email@example.com.
As the Museum reopens next week, our hearts remain with our southeastern Louisiana neighbors who faced the worst impacts of Hurricane Ida. Their strong recovery is critical to preserving the Louisiana culture we all love.
Thank you once more for your continued support of the Museum’s mission. We look forward to resuming our virtual and in-person programs and hope to welcome you to our campus one day soon.
