Free First 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 is 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 free first Sundays. The theme changes every month, and this day of fun includes activities, games, and learning opportunities all geared to kids. For more information, please call 225-342-1942.
On the first Sunday of every month, we join with other downtown museums to open our doors to the public for free! Come by between 10-4 for family-friendly themed activities or enjoy a self-guided tour of the USS Kidd and Veterans Museum.
Due to maintenance on the gangway visitors will not be able to come aboard on these days. The museum building can still be toured
