A great value for your admission. Don't pass up the movie "beyond all boundaries". It is a multi dimensional experience that never fails to impress anyone who Has seen it. The static exhibits are fantastic. It almost seems as if you were there. Thank you to all our World War II veterans.

This is an excellent museum and especially good if you want to learn more - it has a lot of detail. The planes alone are worth seeing.

Be ready to be moved and educated. I love history but learned things about WWII not taught in schools.

The museum is very heavy on photographs. There are a number of real artifacts and some audio-visual displays, but for the most part it's photographs and extensive captioning. That's okay, but the lighting in this museum hasn't been calibrated well for looking at photos/text mounted vertically on walls. There is a lot of glare, both on the items and in... More

The film narrated by Tom Hanks was the highlight and gave depth to the exhibits. I would recommend this be one of your stops even if you are here on business.

Nice airplane exhibits. Exhibits on the European and Pacific theatres with guns, uniforms, etc. from those eras. Walking tour takes about an hour self guided unless you want to listen to all of the exhibit videos. There is a restaurant and they are building a new theatre (not open yet.)

I enjoyed my stroll through time at the museum. I did not visit all of the museum as my time was limited. The staff seemed friendly and I would like to return and visit again.

The exhibits were great. A bit costly considering 2 of the buildings weren't open. A really cool place to go if you're into history.

Beautiful presentation but too much to take in in one day. Thought the film was very well done. Everyone in our group went to see it at some time during our visit and felt that it was a good experience. However, don't know if anyone felt that he or she learned anything new about the war but the personal anecdotes... More

I really wondered why a WWII museum in NOLA but after going I can understand why. I wont spoil it for you but I would recommend this to any tourist of any age in NOLA.
