Museum After Dark | Mardi Gras

Celebrate Mardi Gras with the NBMAA! Enjoy a drink with friends, explore our galleries and special exhibitions, dance to local musicians, and unwind in a fun, New Orleans-themed creative environment.

Dance to live musicians with the sounds of River City Slim & The Zydeco Hogs, get your face painted or make a traditional Mardi Gras mask, and commemorate the night with a photo taken in the Alter-Ego photo booth! Guests can also get their fortune told with Bone Thrower Evernia Fay.

Food will be available for purchase from Bear's Smokehouse BBQ, including their Texas Sausage Jambalaya.

Have a slice of our "King Cake," a traditional Mardi Gras dessert, a cross between a coffee cake and french pastry, this cake hides a secret; inside the cake will be a hidden idol, symbolizing good luck. Find the idol in your slice of cake to be crowned King or Queen of the party!
