Mardi Gras World

Local Museums

Not dusty or boring, New Orleans’ museum scene is as eclectic as its residents - and local museums can be the perfect backdrop to a themed affair. Be the Queen of the masquerade at Mardi Gras World. Or, swing the night away in a 1940’s themed affair in the National WWII Museum. Animal lovers can rent out space at the Audubon Zoo or Aquarium, and children-at-heart can play at the Louisiana Children’s Museum.
