Memorial Day weekend...

My bf and I will be visiting New Orleans this weekend, arriving Saturday (late afternoon) and leaving on Tuesday morning. I just realized Memorial Day is Monday and many things may be closed... will this affect stores, museums, etc? If so, do things also close on Sunday as well?

Engine--Everything is open in New Orleans. On holidays it make take an extra hour or two , but I don't think there will be a problem!

Some things may be closed on Monday, museums for example, but that's because it's their regular policy not because of the holiday. Most everything will be open as usual.

Many museums the world over are closed on Mondays anyway. I would check the websites of the specific places you're interested in visiting.

For example, the WWII museum is open on Mondays, the Presbytere is closed. New Orleans Museum of Art, closed on Mondays. Ogden Museum normally open on Mondays, but closed on Memorial Day.

I would be surprised if any stores were closed - they usually have sales for the holiday, it's a big day for them.
