Owner description: Founded by historian and author, Stephen Ambrose, the Museum tells the story of the American Experience in the war that changed the world - why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today - so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn. Designated by Congress in 2003 as America's National WWII Museum, the campus includes the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion, showcasing the large artifacts of the war and exhibits on D-Day at Normandy, the Home Front and the Pacific; the Solomon Victory Theater, a 4D theater showing the exclusive Tom Hanks production, Beyond All Boundaries; the Stage Door Canteen, where the music and entertainment of the "Greatest Generation" comes to life; the John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion, where staff and volunteers restore artifacts in public view; The American Sector restaurant and Soda Shop - delicious onsite dining options; and the new US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, where exhibits and interactive experiences paint the picture of a nation mobilized for war. Museum exhibits and the Museum Store are open seven days a week, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. Museum exhibits and the Museum Store are open seven days a week, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.

“Interesting Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Thought there would be more stuff to look at being a national museum, good displays but would liked to have seen more WW2 vehicles.

“Celebrated my uncle's 90th birthday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

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.

“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
