“This is a fantastic museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

They are expanding heavily and I can't wait to return when it is all done. My wife was very reluctant to go and ended up really enjoying the exhibit

So glad I saw this! This gave me a better understanding of what my uncle saw and went through. Thank you Uncle Harold and to all those who served.

“Don't miss the movie...!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

It's extensive and involved; I have a short attention span - the movie, narrated by Tom Hanks and a host of actors, was VERY informative and interesting about WWII. Then you go see the exhibits you like without feeling like you missed anything if you skip along. For avid historians, its a must. For want to go but just a little - go see the movie and a few tanks. :-)

“Very Intaresing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The information on Hurricane Catarina and the exhibits from this was quite enlightening.

It was very handy that this was in the centre of New Orlines right beside our hotel.

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

My son is in the PA National Guard and is deploying to Kuwait. We spent Thanksgiving in New Orleans with him before the unit left. He wanted to visit the museum so I tagged along. Beyond All Boundaries is a must see. It costs a few dollars more but it definitely worth it.
