August is Museum Month!

NEW ORLEANS MUSEUM MONTH is a collaboration between museums of all sizes across the greater New Orleans area. It offers museum members the opportunity to visit all participating institutions, FREE OF CHARGE, using their current membership throughout the month of August.

All current and new Longue Vue members receive free admission for two people to any other participating museums in the New Orleans area during the month of August. Likewise, members of participating museums receive free garden admission for two people at Longue Vue during the month of August. If you’re visiting Longue Vue as the member of another Museum Month institution, please bring proof of membership for verification upon check in at the Gate House.

We hope to see members of other participating institutions in our gardens this month to utilize their free admission, and encourage our Longue Vue members to explore the many museums featured in this collaboration!
