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 safety measures, including advanced online ticket purchases along with enhanced sanitizing and cleaning protocols.

Per current state and city guidelines, masks are not required; however, unvaccinated visitors over the age of 2 should continue to wear a mask when inside the Museum. 

Guests are not required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a 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 apply to everyone 12 years of age and older. 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 tickets online in advance. Tickets are now available for advanced purchase.
