Full description
Designated by Congress as the official WWII museum of the United States, the National WWII Museum is located in downtown New Orleans, where 5 soaring pavilions house historical exhibits, on-site restoration work, a period dinner theater, and restaurants. Purchase your timed tickets in advance to secure your desired entry or movie time. Housed in 5 buildings, 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. The Louisiana Memorial Pavilion features the “D-Day Invasion of Normandy” exhibit and an exhibit telling the story of the war experienced on the Home Front.  The "Campaigns of Courage" area features the “Road to Tokyo” exhibit, which retraces the grueling trail from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo. It also houses the “Road to Berlin” exhibit, recreating actual battle settings and villages as America campaigned to defeat the Axis powers. A two-hour guided tour of these two exhibits, led by an expert docent, is also available to book as an option. The U.S. Freedom Pavilion features actual WW2 airplanes restored to their wartime glory, including the B-17E Flying Fortress, as well as wartime tanks and trucks. Liberation Pavilion, which opens in 2022, will explore the closing months of the war and immediate postwar years, concluding with an explanation of links to our lives today.  In the Solomon Victory Theatre, you will be able to see, hear and feel the epic story of World War II in the exclusive 4D experience “Beyond All Boundaries”, narrated by Tom Hanks. This movie experience requires the purchase of the option which includes the 4-D film.

The museum was incredible! It was well priced, and I was happy to experience the history of something close to my heart. My great-grandfather was a POW in WWII who escaped capture, and growing up I heard so many stories from him. It was amazing to see the history behind his stories.

Really interesting experience with interactive exhibits. The scenery and set designs for the different aspects of The Road to Berlin and The Far East were amazing and the children both nearly 17 were spellbound. No mean feet for English teenagers… the help from the volunteers was second to none and gratefully appreciated. Thank you so much.

A very good comprehensive detailed account of the war. I enjoyed going at my own pace. The tour guid wasn’t that helpful and totally breezed over the use of atomic bombs… uh, kind of a big deal and he just glossed right over it. It was very clearly pro American, which is fine, but it could have shown more of how the US screwed up as well.
