The Nation's Official WWII Museum

The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is the top priority of The National WWII Museum. To do our part to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Museum has enacted several safety measures, including advanced online ticket purchases along with enhanced sanitizing and cleaning protocols.

Per City of New Orleans guidelines, masks are required for all visitors while inside the Museum. Guests are not required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID test to enter the Museum or visit its exhibits. However, per City of New Orleans mandate, proof of COVID-19 vaccination (at least one dose) or a negative COVID-19 PCR/antigen test (taken within 72 hours) is required for entry to the Museum's food and beverage outlets, BB's Stage Door Canteen, private rentals, and public events. These requirements currently apply to everyone 5 years of age and older. Proof of two doses of the COVID vaccine will be required for entry to restaurants, entertainment venues, and events starting February 1, 2022. Visit our Know Before You Go page for more details.

To help ensure public safety and avoid crowds, visitors are strongly encouraged to pre-purchase Museum admission online in advance for their preferred time slot. Tickets are now available for advanced purchase.

Thank you for helping to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
