Overview
More
The National WWII Museum is the top-rated tourist destination in New Orleans, TripAdvisor's #2 museum in the world and #2 in the U.S., and an unforgettable way to experience World War II—from industrial efforts on the home front to the combat experience of the American servicemember abroad. Offering a compelling blend of sweeping narrative and poignant personal detail, the Museum features immersive exhibits, multimedia experiences, and an expansive collection of artifacts and first-person oral histories to take visitors inside the story of the war: why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today. Beyond the galleries, the Museum offers unique access to experiential history, including an opportunity to tour and ride on an authentically restored PT-boat, tours behind the scenes to handle artifacts alongside Museum curators, and an impressive collection of restored and working macro-artifacts to discover. Open early through 1/2/18, 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. nationalww2museum.org

I was sad at the end of the day when we found we didn't even have time to make it to the Boeing Center exhibit. We spent all day at the museum. Snacked at the Soda Shop on the premises. (Cookies are HUGE and yummy!)...More

I've never been much of a history person, but I was fascinated by this museum. I could've stayed there all day.

Loved the museum! It was huge, a lot to see and def worth the money. Probably wouldn't go back though, one time was enough.

You could spend days just seeing everything. The movie was by far the best! I had to drag my husband out of there!!!

Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district

assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
