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

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.

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.

We spent 4 1/2 hours in this museum, and did not see everything. There was the aviation section, one movie of about 45 minutes, and another submarine experience of about 15 minutes, and the main exhibit room. Absolutely superb museum, and not fully finished yet.

There for a school field trip with my son. Museum was very nice but the folks there could be a bit more friendlier. I found a couple of the older people not so friendly and that was a turn off. One lady at the desk was not helpful and seem to loose her patient. One cracky gentleman must not remember how he was at their school age. The museum itself was very nice.
