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.

Awesome interactive educational friendly staff Parking can be a problem or you could park a few blocks up Saint Charles and it's free. It was a delight running into more than several veterans that actually lived it and were willing to share some stories

If you are a history buff, especially World War II, you have to make time to visit this museum. You will need a full day if not more to see everything.

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.

Central Business District
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

We just d it on our own so we could spend as much or as little time as we wanted in each area. I am sure the guided tours are amazing but we preferred it on our own and enjoyed every minute of it
