“Thanks to the hot weather, you can visit museums for free Tuesday”

The temperature hit 93 degrees on Monday (Aug. 13). That means on Tuesday (Aug. 14), Louisiana residents can beat the heat at two New Orleans art museums for free, courtesy of The Helis Foundation, as part of the monthlong “Art & A/C” in partnership with FOX8 meteorologists.

Visit New Orleans Museum of Art and Ogden Museum of Southern Art, free of charge. The Contemporary Arts Center is also part of this campaign, but the CAC is closed on Tuesdays.

In addition to air conditioning and art exhibitions, visitors can expect free snowballs from Imperial Woodpecker, hand fans and bottles of water. For more information visit
