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.

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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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
