“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

You will need more than one day to see it all. We returned a second day and were allowed back in though one volunteer did challenge us about it. The movie was OK but not worth the time.

“Surprise attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Very well done and extremely fascinating. A must for the WWII buff.
The museum is easy to get too and also has a movie when you need a little rest.

“Give yourself plenty of time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We did not realize a museum of this caliber was here but you should definitely try to go here when in New Orleans. And the movie narrated by Tom Hanks is a 4D movie(included sensory experience) is a must. It tells you all about WW2, both the European part and the Pacific part. Unbelievable. We were there 4 hours and it was not enough if you want to see the movie and read all the info in the exhibits. Don't miss this museum!

“WWII Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We visited the WWII Museum in honor of Veterans Day. Please go if you have a chance. We spent a couple of hours in the museum and could have stayed longer. There is much to see and the personal stories made the experience unforgettable.

“Great experience and slice of history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Wonderful artifacts, a good blend of written, auditory and interactive, loved all the large displays (tank, jeep, etc.). The museum staff (volunteers?) are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant with retro-dressed waitstaff is fun! Our favorite was the 4D Movie - great for the whole family! Watch out for the snow!
