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 current City of New Orleans guidelines, Museum visitors are not required to wear masks or provide proof of vaccination. However, the CDC strongly encourages unvaccinated individuals to continue wearing a mask when indoors. 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.
