After closing down almost entirely to the public last summer due to the pandemic, the Louisiana Children’s Museum will reopen May 29.

Julia Bland, the museum’s CEO, said in a statement that she is “counting down the days” until children and adults could once again gather together in the New Orleans City Park-based museum’s indoor and outdoor settings as the city and state continue to loosen gathering and capacity restrictions.

“Our children’s lives have been filled with uncertainty, anxiety, fear, and loss from being in and out of school, away from friends, teachers, and caregivers, and separated from grandparents, family members and others,” Bland said. “Children thrive on the dependability and predictability of their daily routines. We hope returning to a favorite, familiar, and playful museum will create joy and a sense of normalcy for children and families.”
