The Museums

From the World War II Museum to the Audubon Insectarium, New Orleans holds an endless variety of historic, cultural, and scientific institutions. The city is a proud host of over 45 different museums, spread from Uptown to the French Quarter and beyond.

Spend your weekend at Arthur Roger’s contemporary art collection at NOMA or the Arsenal of Democracy exhibit at The National World War II Museum. With such incredible museums and exhibits, you’re sure to have an insightful month.
