I am a WWII history buff. This museum greatly enhanced my knowledge. My father served in the South Pacific for 4 years. This museum gives further insight into what he must have experienced. I regret he never talked about it more.

We really loved spending the day here! The movie, "Beyond All Boundaries" was excellent and well worth it. The Pacific Theater is on one floor and the Road to Berlin was on the other. Both had film summaries of the battles being described along with...More

I am very interested in history and had high hopes for the unexpected top attraction for Nola. As a global citizen with education from both the U.S. & Japan, it was disappointing. They do a decent job of explaining the events leading up to WW2,...More

This museum is awesome! I really like that they mix narrated films into the exhibit areas. They do a good job at telling the story of WWII from all fronts. We would definitely recommend it, but it is huge and probably better to spend at...More

Such an outstanding presentation both informative and entertaining is very rare to find. In particular with such a different topic. I found the presentation very neutral and only slightly biased to the glory of the american nation - something that Smithsonian e.g. drives to perfection...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
