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 is enacting safety measures, including advanced online ticket purchases, facial covering requirements, social distancing guidelines throughout pavilions and galleries, and enhanced sanitizing and cleaning protocols.

The City of New Orleans has issued an indoor mask mandate. Visitors are required to wear a mask when inside the museum, regardless of vaccination status.

To help ensure public safety and avoid crowds, timed ticket purchases will be required. It is strongly recommended that visitors pre-purchase Museum admission online in advance. Tickets are now available for advanced purchase.

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