There is so much to do in New Orleans and the list just got even better! 

August is "New Orleans Museum Month" and there are two dozen New Orleans museums that will offer free admissions this month. The list of participating museums is amazing this year and will surely give everybody something to do on the weekends. One of the most interesting museums listed is my personal favorite museum, The National WWII Museum.
