The people who have created and keep improving this museum have done an excellent job preserving and presenting the history of WWII. Recommend visiting this museum if you’re in New Orleans. There’s a lot of history here.

The museum honors what is considered the finest generation of Americans. The story of WWII is told in interactive displays, movies, artifacts and memorabilia, and WWII surviving service members. The range of emotions and the tremendous impact cannot be put into words, if you served...More

One of the best museums we have ever seen. Incredibly immersive, inspirational and informative.

Even for people who aren’t interested in history or war, I...More

This is a must for every American and non-America to experience. Plans a couple of hours and you must see Beyond Boundaries. Thank you to all our Veterans and their family members for your sacrifice!

The WWII museum was unbelievable. We took the 1 hour tour which is free and well worth it. We spent 4 hours in the museum and still did not have a chance to see everything. I would highly recommend visiting the WWII museum.

One of the best museums I’ve ever visited. If you have any knowledge of the war, had a parent or grandparent that was enlisted - well worth your time.

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

We went mid-week arrived just after opening about 10:30 a.m. A line was short and moved quickly. They had lots of cashiers open to pay for your ticket and ask questions. Well organized. Enjoy if you go.
