NOLA Museums

NOLA's vibrant history is showcased in a wonderful assortment of local museums. While these museums are great to visit during any season, August is New Orleans Museum Month. Throughout this month, if you're a museum member at one of the participating museums you get free admission to all the other local institutions participating in the month-long event.

Join our real estate agents in celebrating New Orleans Museum MonthWhile the list of participating museums still has yet to be revealed, let's take a look at some of the area's museums to prepare for August.

  • Contemporary Arts Center - 900 Camp St., New Orleans, LA 70130
    Art spans a wide variety of disciplines, from painting and sculpture to music and dance. Contemporary Arts Center transforms a historic 30,000-square-foot warehouse into a showcase for modern art. The calendar features a wide range of events, programs, and activities with a focus on local and regional artists. CAC is open 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.

  • Longue Vue House and Gardens - 7 Bamboo Rd., New Orleans, LA 70124
    Once the family home of philanthropists Edith and Edgar Stern, Longue Vue House and Gardens stands as a fascinating testament to the civic and cultural history of New Orleans during the 20th century. With features such as central air conditioning, a photography dark room, and a below-grade basement, the house was ahead of its time. Noted garden designer Ellen Shipman curated each section of the grounds to provide a unique experience. Twilight at Longue Vue is a series of open-air concerts held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month during daylight savings time. Hours are 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

  • Lousiana Children's Museum - 15 Henry Thomas Dr., New Orleans, LA 70124
    Solve the kids' summer complaint of, "There's nothing to do!" with an entertaining trip to the Louisiana Children's Museum, conveniently located just minutes from New Orleans homes for sale. Interactive exhibits such as "Dig Into Nature," "Follow that Food," and "Move with the River" might make you wish you were a kid again. Thanks to steel drums, a binocular station, and other activities in the museum's "backyard," there's plenty of outdoor time as well. Themed weekly and monthly programs include Story Time, Plant and Play, and Community Kindness Project. Museum hours are 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 11:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

  • Southern Food & Beverage Museum - 1504 Oretha C. Haley Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70113
    Eating is a topic that's near and dear to just about everyone's heart. The Southern Food & Beverage Museum is a stellar tribute to the unique culinary heritage of New Orleans and the South. SoFAB features an exhibit for each of the Southern states, along with a state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen and a sub-museum dedicated to the history of the American cocktail. SoFAB is open Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

  • New Orleans Jazz Museum - 400 Esplanade Ave., New Orleans, LA 70116
    Jazz is deeply embedded in the city's DNA. Another NOLA trademark, the historic Old U.S. Mint, now houses the New Orleans Jazz Museum. In addition to rotating exhibits such as "Drumsville: Evolution of the New Orleans Beat," the museum hosts multiple concerts and festivals throughout the year. Hours are 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
