SEE BAYOU TO BATTLEFIELD: HIGGINS INDUSTRIES DURING WORLD WAR II

Now's your chance to see what TripAdvisor calls the #1 attraction in New Orleans, the #3 museum in the United States, and the #8 museum in the world! During the month of September only, Louisiana residents get half off our Museum Campus Pass with a state-issued photo ID. Also, receive half off our exclusive Museum tours and PT-305 rides and Close Quarters Tours. These tours have limited availability, so reserve your tickets early!

Come see the dramatic expansion the Museum has undergone in recent years, including the newest permanent exhibit, Bayou to Battlefield: Higgins Industries during World War II, which tells the remarkable story of WWII boatbuilder Andrew Jackson Higgins and his diverse New Orleans workforce in vivid detail through text panels, artifacts, a video presentation, and interactive table with Higgins highlights. And don’t miss this special opportunity to see In Memory of What I Cannot Say: The Art of Guy de Montlaur, our latest special exhibit that examines the life and work of a French fine-art painter who fought Nazis on several battlegrounds, surviving hand-to-hand combat as a member of the French army at the onset of World War II then the perils of Sword Beach with the Free French Commandos on June 6, 1944. Guy de Montlaur, who suffered multiple wounds in combat that he carried for the rest of his life, channeled his wartime experiences into art, creating vivid abstract paintings until his death at age 58 in 1977.
