Loved everything about this place. If you like history, they cover it from start to finish and they are continuously updating and expanding. Wish they were open earlier and later in the day.

I am really glad I went there. You need to know your history. A lot of interesting information, short documentary movies, historic train ride, real planes etc. You need to know your history. Highly recommend.

This was not my pick, I'm on vacation (happy times). My husband wanted to go here with it being the #1 attraction. We watched the Tom Hanks 4D movie and I enjoyed that, the rest of the museum was very well done and did a great job of telling the story of WWII.

I have been in other WWII museums, but nothing compares with the quality and quantity presented in the National WWII museum in New Orleans. I am a WWII veteran and I was treated like royalty by the museum personnel.

My entire family enjoys visiting here. My son was 12 the first visit and he read every caption. This is something anyone can do from 0-100.

Because we arrived in New Orleans mid afternoon and were leaving the next morning, we had to rush through the museum, but very much enjoyed what we saw. The Boeing Center was nice, and a WWII vet was in the lobby to tell his story. It was a pleasure to spend a few minutes with him. We saw Beyond All... More

I viewed the exhibits for probably less than 2 hours, but I could have stayed much longer. It is a large place with well layed out exhibits. You can learn so much about WWII! My father-in-law was at D-Day. Whatever you do in NOLA, take the time to go here.

New Orleans is steadily building out this national treasure-- the WW II museum is well-conceived and continues to add attractions over the past few years. I come here every year for a school field trip and never tire of seeing the exhibits. Attraction #1--WWII vets on hand to talk about their experiences. Fun and moving at the same time. If... More

Went here only by chance and we are so glad we did, being from Australia we didn't know a lot about Americas involvement in the war or how it won its battles, the whole experience is fantastic, the volunteers who make it possible do a great job, you have too see the movies and make sure you spend a lot...
