NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Throughout September 2022, Louisiana residents are invited to visit The National WWII Museum’s immersive galleries for 50 percent off. 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. 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 addition to the Museum’s permanent galleries and exhibits, starting September 2, visitors will also have access to a new special exhibition, In Real Times. Arthur Szyk: Art & Human Rights, which examines the work of artist and political cartoonist Arthur Szyk. In Real Times. Arthur Szyk: Art & Human Rights is curated by Francesco Spagnolo, Curator, University of California, Berkeley, The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life. The acquisition of the Taube Family Arthur Szyk Collection (2017) and research for this exhibition were made possible by a generous gift from Taube Philanthropies. The special exhibition is presented in New Orleans by Taube Philanthropies, with additional support from George Marcus and the Isermann Foundation.

In order to receive the September discount, residents must present a valid Louisiana state ID at the Museum’s ticket counter. For an additional fee, visitors can also choose to include Beyond All Boundaries, a 4D journey through World War II. The 50 percent discount is limited to four admissions per ID. Tickets start at $9.50 and may be pre-purchased online.
