The National WW2 museum is a fantastic record of the sacrifices made by the Greatest Generation to win WW2. The focus is on D-day since a New Orleans businessman invented the amphibious vehicles used in DDay and the pacific battles, but there are many other interesting areas, including exhibits on the Pacific battles, American prisoners of war, and aircraft. We had the privilege of meeting several WW2 veterans. The Tom Hanks film, Beyond all Boundaries, is excellent, and the USS Tang submarine experience is a lot of fun. The best part of the museum is the numerous 2 minute testimonies by soldiers and nurses from all nations, including the Axis powers. We spent a full day here and weren't able to see it all, so we paid $6 for an additional day and spent a morning finishing the exhibits. Lunch at American Spectator is excellent and reservations are highly recommended. Our teenage son loved this (he is a history buff) and we will return here with the rest of our kids.
