“excellent information”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Spent a couple of hours here. I would have spent longer on my own. Really good info on D Day and the Pacific Front. Wasn't crowded at all but Mardi Gras was over and we went early in morning. Would recommend for older kids and families and all adults.

“Great history lesson”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I learned more about WWII during my visit to the museum then I did in any history class. It will take you at least four hours to go through. Make sure you take the time.

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Too crowded to enjoy the exhibits. There were so many people that we could not see the screens which was the most important part of the exhibit. After 40 minutes of trying to watch or at least listen to the exhibits we left.

What a well-designed museum this is. It really brings WWII down to the human level effectively and movingly. A great experience.

“Incredibly moving-Wonderfully informative.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This fine museum brings the time and challenges of WWII to vivid life. The 4-D presentation, "Beyond all Boundaries" vastly exceeded my expectations and is well worth the small extra admission for its' emotive connection to the greatest challenge in our history as a nation. There is no wonder why men and women of this era were termed The Greatest Generation". Go see for yourself and realise how lucky you are.
