Owner description: The National WWII Museum is the top-rated tourist destination in New Orleans, TripAdvisor's #2 museum in the world and #2 in the U.S., and an unforgettable way to experience World War II—from industrial efforts on the home front to the combat experience of the American servicemember abroad. Offering a compelling blend of sweeping narrative and poignant personal detail, the Museum features immersive exhibits, multimedia experiences, and an expansive collection of artifacts and first-person oral histories to take visitors inside the story of the war: why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today. Beyond the galleries, the Museum offers unique access to experiential history, including an opportunity to tour and even ride on an authentically restored PT-boat, tours behind the scenes to handle artifacts alongside Museum curators, and an impressive collection of restored and working macro-artifacts to discover. The Museum is open daily, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. nationalww2museum.org

All in all, a very interesting museum. My uncle who was turning 90 wanted to have his birthday celebration there. The museum organized a 3-D movie for us and afterwards we had dinner in the restaurant. The food was very good and excellent service. It is a museum that shouldn't be overlooked with all New Orleans has to offer.

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

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. :-)
