KNMF Museum

Our Mission is to build a national museum in New Orleans, Louisiana to provide a place to honor those who perished in Hurricane Katrina, remember and learn from the catastrophe, and celebrate the strength of the survivors and those who came to help rebuild. In creating this international destination we will establish a system of apprenticeship and mentoring for the youth of New Orleans in the building and landscape trades, while using cutting-edge “green” technologies. Our vision is to construct the first LEED Certified Platinum museum of it’s kind in America. This mission was adopted on the 15, June @007, by  the Board of Directors of the, Katrina National Memorial Park Charitable Foundation.

We would like to take a moment to acknowledge our Columbia University student volunteers who are helping with this effort: Andrea Basche, Michelle Condroy, Nick Dahlheim, Stephanie Goetz, Justin Mankin, Jessica Rosen, Lucy Stowe, and Jennifer Yum. We couldn’t do this without you.
