The National WWII Museum is the top-rated tourist destination in New Orleans, TripAdvisor's #2 museum in the world and #2 in the U.S., and an unforgettable way to experience World War II—from industrial efforts on the home front to the combat experience of the American servicemember abroad. Offering a compelling blend of sweeping narrative and poignant personal detail, the Museum features immersive exhibits, multimedia experiences, and an expansive collection of artifacts and first-person oral histories to take visitors inside the story of the war: why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today. Beyond the galleries, the Museum offers unique access to experiential history, including an opportunity to tour and even ride on an authentically restored PT-boat, tours behind the scenes to handle artifacts alongside Museum curators, and an impressive collection of restored and working macro-artifacts to discover. The Museum is open daily, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. nationalww2museum.org

There is so much to see at this museum you can't do it all in one day. It is so well done and very informative. Every American should visit!

After 4 hours here we wished we had planned for more time - unless you're a local, you can't see it all. Definitely see the movie, and go to the hanger. Pacific and European Theater floors were amazing too. Too much good stuff for one...More

This museum is very well done, very moving, and very informative. The museum intersperses many items and informative pieces with graphics, and filmed historical footage. I realized walking through the exhibits how little I actually knew about the conflict other than major dates and major...More

First it is a beautiful building in a very convenient location not far from the Quarter. Most of the exhibits were absolutely amazing. In addition the video presentations were well made and quite enjoyable. Unfortunately I found the layout, flow and lack of directions confusing....More

The National WWII Museum was the brainchild of the late Stephen Ambrose, author of Band of Brothers. In fewer than 20 years, the original National D-Day Museum is now New Orlean's #1 tourist attraction. This is reflected in the long lines at the ticket office...More

Not only is it informative but presented in an immersive and dramatic way. You totally get an incredible understanding of the entire WWII situation including what is was like to live in those times

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
