Normally I finish a museum in half the time advised but for this one I actually found myself needing more time!! Amazing exhibits with lots of interaction and the 4D movie is not to be missed. A powerful learning experience that should not be missed

You need more that a day at the EXCELLENT museum. The history, the movies, the memorabilia is excellent. The way the museum choreographs your experience make you want MORE!!! I want to go back. We spent 6 hours at the museum but it went by so fast! There's a reason it's the #2 museum in the nation.

The WW2 museum stands true as a poignant and touching tribute to the greatest war of the modern world. By using the mockup of a bombed shelter and breaking up the events to facilite small audio-visual groups and by not making it too comfortable for viewers, the Museum is a time-stands-still experience, for a person passing through the city with not much time in hand. A must see for all to understand that this war must not happen again. Take the St. Charles Street tramcar from Canal and arrive at the WW2, enjoy it's avant garde architecture on the outside, sit on the bench beside President Eisenhower, touch a piece of history in the fragment of the Atlantic Wall, shape hands with a war veteran and take away a very personal tale ...

Kind of expensive but you can spend your whole day there. The place is huge and the exhibits are well put together. We went on Sunday Nov 11 and there was a special Veterans Day program... I think there were 6 WWII veterans at the ceremony.. all were in their late 80 or 90's... Imagine what those guys went through.

If your into history... this is a must do when in NOLA

After spending several days in Normandy last year, I was looking forward to visiting the NOLA WWII museum. I wasn’t prepared for the emotional impact, take you to the scene-type impact. The museum is a visual, informative, video/print/pictorial honor to the men and women who defended our country and our allies. The additional movie “Beyond the Boundaries” is extraordinary in its mixture of sound, visual, and artistry. Do not miss this treasure. It is a critical historical masterpiece that educates and reminds us all of what happened during this critical time period and what could happen again.

I had no idea this museum existed and it is now one of my top 3 all time. You need at least 4 hours but if you like history at all give yourself a day. You won't regret it.

Friends recommended this and it was worth every minute. They have a few vets from WWII answering questions and very good view of what happened in Europe and The South Pacific.

Wow. This museum is done so nicely. Their is so much to see. They are building another building. If too much is done, you will really need 2 days to see this. We got their a little after 9 am, and left around 3 pm, Moving pretty fast, if we stopped and read more, or watched more of the clips (we could have). It is definitely worth going.

The WWI Museum was a great experience. I really like the way you can journey through the War with a solider. The displays and documentaries were fabulous and touching.
