New Orleans Museums Offer Free Admission In August
There is so much to do in New Orleans and since we are just a little drive away from the city you may want to take advantage of this opportunity.
August is "New Orleans Museum Month" and there are several New Orleans museums that will offer free admission this month. The list of participating museums is amazing and will surely give everybody something to do on the weekends.
