The Louisiana Children's Museum recently announced their newest holiday hours for the week of Thanksgiving. Tickets must be purchased in advance because, in compliance with the city and state's social-distancing guidelines, the museum is only allowing a certain number of guests in at a time.
Their special Thanksgiving hours are as follows:
●Saturday, November 21, 9:30 a.m.
- 4:30 p.m.
●Sunday, November 22, 12 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
●Monday, November 23 - Wednesday, November 25, 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
●Thursday, November 26, closed
●Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28, 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
●Sunday, November 29, 12 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The museum's gift shop will be open, as will Acorn, the café inside of the museum, which sells pizza (by the slice and the whole pie), breakfast meals, sandwiches, and more.
Not only will the Children's Museum prove to be a great activity for your family, but their new location in City Park (as of 2019) also offers a wide variety of family activities. Start off your day by enjoying hot and delicious beignets in City Park's Café du Monde, then walk around and admire the unique and eccentric statues in the Botanical Gardens, and end your day by going to the Children's Museum, which offers an entertaining and interactive experience for both children and adults.
In the Children's Museum, every adult and child over the age of eight is required to wear a face mask, and face masks are strongly recommended for children from the ages of three to seven. Hand sanitizer is offered to guests at the entrance of the museum and throughout the exhibits. Guests are strongly encouraged to remain six feet apart from others while in the museum.
Come to the Children's Museum for a fun and family way to celebrate a holiday that reminds us to be grateful for family and friends. General admission tickets cost $14 per person. Member admission is free, and the number of free tickets for members depends on your membership. Click here to purchase your tickets ahead of time.
