One of the country’s top museums is right here in downtown New Orleans: The National World War II Museum. Rated as one of the top museums in the United States and designated by Congress as the country’s official WW II museum, the facility has five pavilions with more than 19,000 square feet dedicated to this world and life-changing event. It is definitely a must-see.
Because of the expanse and depth of information in the Museum, you’ll want to allow at least half a day for a visit—but you could easily spend multiple days here.
Step inside and you’ll find immersive exhibits that replicate jungles, mountains, beaches, and oceans; multimedia exhibits that detail the history of the battles and lives of those involved; and an extensive collection of artifacts and first-person stories that describe the inside story of the war. In the Campaigns of Courage pavilion, there are remarkable exhibits on the European and Pacific theaters, which show you in detail the path to victory.
While at the Museum, be sure to view the 3-D movie, Beyond All Boundaries, which portrays the journey of World War II.
There is nothing like this museum anywhere else in the world. You won’t want to miss it.
