NEW ORLEANS (NOLA WEEKEND) - This month might make a good time to visit the National WWII Museum if you haven’t in a while. During the entire month of September, Louisiana residents can get half off the price of regular admission, the museum announced.
The promotion includes most exhibits and galleries, including a new special exhibition, “In Real Times. Arthur Szyk: Art & Human Rights.” This special exhibit will open Friday.
The museum’s new exhibit examines the work of artist and political cartoonist Arthur Szyk and is curated by Francesco Spagnolo, curator of The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life at the University of California, Berkeley.
“This is the perfect time for visitors to see what’s been added since they’ve last been to the Museum—or to discover this world-renowned institution for the first time,” a spokesman for the museum said in a release. “What started as a single building dedicated to the D-Day landings has become a soaring multi-pavilion campus covering the complete American experience in World War II—and it’s still right in your backyard.”
In order to receive the September discount, residents must present a valid Louisiana state ID at the Museum’s ticket counter. The 50 percent discount is limited to four admissions per ID, the museum says. Tickets start at $9.50. Museum officials encourage guests to pre-purchase tickets online.
For an additional fee, visitors can also choose to include the museum’s 4D experience, “Beyond All Boundaries.”
The National WWII Museum is located at 945 Magazine St. in New Orleans.
