As we settle into our new reality, it's important to remember that New Orleans can still be experienced from home. Whether it's virtually visiting a museum or enjoying a workout from a New Orleans studio, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the city and its many offerings, while also following the rules. Below, four things that you can do today.

Experience Art

Through a partnership with the Google Cultural Institute, the New Orleans Museum of Art is offering high-resolution tours of its permanent collection. The museum, which opened in 1911, hosts an impressive permanent collection of almost 40,000 objects. While a virtual museum visit can only capture so much, the museum expressed in a letter that they hope the digital experience brings viewers peace and inspiration during this challenging time. 


Attend a Concert

Starting this Monday, March 23, New Orleans singer Robin Barnes presents #SongbirdAtHome. Together with her husband Pat Casey, the duo will bring a concert from their living room to yours. The show can be streamed on Facebook and Instagram at 7 p.m. and will feature tunes, positive vibes, and a potential cameo by the couple's baby. Donations can be made via Venmo (@neworleanssongbird), CashApp (@neworleanssongbird), or Zelle (robin@robinmariebarnes.com).
