This museum is one of the best I have ever toured, especially how the visitor is brought into the experience. A visitor can move through at their own pace with audio available all along the way. Exhibits and sound transport you into the many difficult...More
We enjoyed our visit to the WW2 museum. We didn't leave enough time so my best advice is to make sure you leave yourself several hours.The movie with Tom Hanks is definitely worth the additional money.
This is a truly great museum to visit. There are so many interesting areas and experiences to witness. We visited two days because you can't rush through so much history. You will not be disappointed to visit, this is one museum that will captivate your...More

The Museum is a fitting tribute to all who sacrificed to liberate the world from fascism and racism. Tom Hanks narrates a brilliant film with sound, light, and seat effects. Excellent shop with memorabilia. Highlight of any visit to New Orleans.
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.

Yes you can return multiple times on the same day. Upon paying admission, you will be issued a small badge to display on your outer clothing to show you have paid admission. As you depart and return to the museum remember to keep your badge. I just verified same with ticketing office.
