We were deeply humbled when we were welcomed by a veteran of both WWII and the Korean war. We were both impressed and moved by the film narrated by Tom Hanks and the "setting the scene" prequel. Yes, from a British couple's perspective (both with deceased fathers who had served in the British army and navy in WWII and mothers... More

Ok, some of the stuff is a bit much for the kids and some of the vets/guides are a little overzealous. All that aside, the museum is full of interesting exhibits and stories. Didn't do Beyond all Borders, so I'll be back. The submarine experience is set up like a park ride, so you kind of forget the gravity of... More

A Museum consisting of a number of building laid out like a small Campus. The exhibits are excellent, the Staff friendly and helpful, my only complaint was the pervading smells from the mass Catering venue at GF in the Entrance Main building.

The National WWII Museum has many great exhibits and is still expanding. The 4D movie experience hosted by Tom Hanks is incredible!

There are several galleries under construction, and when they open, this museum will be incredible. Right now, it's good. Started with the Tom Hanks movie -- it was excellent and should not be missed. The exhibits themselves are very good, and the 2-minute personal histories in each section are really interesting and unique. We normally take a long time in... More

Make sure to bring some tissue with you because you will be sure to run into veterans during your visit. Don't be shy to stop and ask questions or thank them for their service. It is worth it to pay the extra $5 for the movie, Beyond All Boundaries, and to participate in the U.S.S. Tang adventure. In Dec. 2014... More

Wonderful, modern museum taking advantage of new technology. Very immersive experience... Be sure to see the movie it's worth the cost! Museum is still expanding but is worth the price of admission as it is! One of the best museums I have been to in the country... Smithsonian level if not beyond!
