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. The exhibits were incredible and everything is presented objectively without feeling slanted towards the United States involvement in the war. Even for people who aren’t interested in history or war, I...More
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.
We visited on a short trip to NOLA. It was a beautiful museum with a lot of great artifacts. We went on Veteran's day, so it was quite busy and it was a lot to navigate all there was to see. We also watched the...More

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
glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.

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.
