If you like history this is a stop for you. Informative without being boring. Lots of exhibits. Having family that served in WWII it was nice to see the photos and displays that were there and just take it all in.

This is a fantastic museum. Great insight into our entry into the war, the GI invasion of England leading up to D-Day and so much more. Truly a world class museum. The movie is an outstanding 4D production. You can still catch a few of the WWII vets visiting on any given day. Don't miss this on a visit to... More

This museum offers a complete and well documented history of WW2. It offers tons of very short and interesting film clips and the ability to hear first hand accounts from veterans on all fronts of the war. We got there three hours before closing time, which we thought would be plenty, but we were wrong. The place deserves at least... More

My wife and I visited the museum during a trip to New Orleans in mid-October. Both of us were born at the beginning of the war.

This amazing museum is well worth the trip to New Orleans. Its buildings are beautiful and the compound is huge! Very informative, moving and emotional displays. Don't miss the movie! And our guide, Ashley, was an absolute delight.

Information was well-presented. There was enough to fill almost 2 days in the museum alone, and a new building has now opened up with more exhibits.

This a very special place. We go again and again. This is a must see if you are in New Orleans. Be sure to allow enough time, to see it all you need at least a day.

We have been here 3 times & it doesn't get boring. The 4d movie is a must see & Tom Hanks does a fabulous job. It actually snows in the auditorium! Please go & keep this museum up and going!
