NEW ORLEANS – Museum Month and COOLinary, created and led by New Orleans & Company, return throughout August. The 8th annual New Orleans Museum Month gives members of one local museum the chance to visit all other participating institutions for free. During the 18th annual COOLinary New Orleans, some of the city’s finest dining establishments will offer curated prix fixe menus.
