Free 1st Sunday is a partnership program among several downtown Baton Rouge museums that gives families an opportunity to visit local museums free of charge. The USS KIDD Veterans Museum will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. but the majority of our "themed ” activities take place from noon until 4:00 p.m. in the museum lobby. On Sunday, May 7ththe First Free Sunday event theme will be "Pirates and Princesses." To coincide with the EL GALEÓN's last day in port, Captain Jack Sparrow (aka Johnny Depp look-alike Arik Christopher) and some lovely princesses courtesy of Petite Princess will be making an appearance for the young pirates and princesses of Baton Rouge.
This event is presented by the USS KIDD, Hotel Indigo, and the Belle of Baton Rouge Casino and Hotel.
This will be the last time Baton Rougians will be able to visit the EL GALEÓN. Admission to the 16th century replica will be $10 for adults, $5 for children 5-12. Children under 4 are free.
