This museum was an unexpected highlight of our New Orleans trip. With a 6 and 9 year old in tow, during a rainy day, we spent almost a whole day here. And we didn’t even manage to do it all! Interactive elements actually engaged the...More

This was an amazing museum with newsreels, short videos and lots of artifacts from WWII. There were even a couple of WWII vets greeting visitors. This was an easy tram ride and walk from Canal Street. The exhibits are divided into pre-war, Europe & Normandy,...More

I was very skeptical about going to this museum, which was included on my tour. However, i am so glad I went. I learned so much more about this war then I ever learned in school. There were so many angles that led up to...More

The museum is huge, with an amazing collection. I was surprised because before going to NOLA I've never heard about it. Highly recommended if you appreciate history.

This museum is exceedingly well-done. The exhibits not only stage the scope and scale of the war but also bring it home with personal stories and artifacts. At the very least, plan to spend 2-4 hours here. We recommend getting second-day tickets and breaking it...More

Amazing artifacts, excellent exhibitions, film footage never seen before. You can pick up a 'dog tag' and scan it at various stations to hear a personal story of army personnel. We could have spent 2 days there and would have if there were multi day...More

As two people who spend a lot of time at historic sites across the country we were looking forward to seeing this museum during our visit. It’s expensive but I knew it was huge so I figured it was worth it. The people working there...More

It not worth spending $90.00 to go to this museum for three people to go towards it. Also i hated that i had to wear a dumb button at the museum.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
