Katrina Exhibit in the Louisiana State Museum Opens — You may want to check it out!

Five years after the most devastating Hurricane ever to hit the United States and the massive destruction that followed, an exhibit has opened at the Louisiana State Museum documenting that destruction.

Living with Hurricanes: Katrina and Beyond, a $7.5 million, 6,700 square-foot exhibit on the ground floor of the historic Presbytere in the French Quarter's Jackson Square tells the stories of real people caught in the hurricane's wrath. It documents their rescue, recovery, rebuilding and renewal of New Orleans in a way certain to move both those who survived the storms of 2005 and those who watched the events unfold on TV.

The exhibit will be located at The Presbytere on Jackson Square, at the corner of St. Ann and Chartres streets. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. No closing date for the exhibit has been announced.

Admission fees are $6 for adults and $5 for senior citizens, students and active military. Children under 12 and school groups with reservations are free. Groups with 15 or more get a 20 percent discount; 10% off for AAA members.
