5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The interactive exhibits really brought home the horror of war and the courage of those who fought in world war 2.

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

This is one of, if not the best, military museum that I have visited in the USA. The staff and volunteers were great and very knowledgeable. We had a tour from a young volunteer which was great. It's nice to see an interest by the younger generation for our past. See the PT boat restoration, don't miss the theater presentation, and the new Boeing center. The only dissapointing thing, was the Higgens boat and some other items were removed so the NFL could set up a display for the Superbowl. I'm sure this was done to get more traffic into the museum during the event (move money), which I guess is OK. Don't miss this museum!

“Interesting with caring people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I liked everything about the Museum. There is nothing to dislike. It is informative and the people are anxious to assist in everyway possible. You will not regret going to see it and then you may continue on and see all of New Orleans something you cannot do elsewhere as readily
