Pleasant surprise on a rainy afternoon. Wish I had more time. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and was quite moved by the displays. The only thing I would say is that the layout is a bit confusing but there are plenty of people to help.

Went there with some of my grandchildren who were fascinated. We went to the movie narrated by Tom Hanks ( sorry, I can't remember the exact title) which was spellbinding. Great for the whole family.

What a great way to spend a rainy day! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this large museum. It was filled with amazing memorabilia, photographs, and descriptions of WWII.

The movie was worth the extra $. Lots of big buildings to check out. We also did the sub experience, it was ok, would not do that one again.

As many times as I have visited New Orleans, I did not know about this until our recent trip. I really love museums and history so I enjoyed this very much. It took more time than I realized to go through it and that was not reading ever word or placard on the wall. Thought it was very well done... More
