I have been to a lot of WWII museums, so I wasn't expecting to be "wowed." I was wrong. They really did a great job at this museum. I particularly liked the Arsenal of Democracy section.

I recommend this place for sure. It's well done overall, but if you're remotely educated about the war, don't expect to learn much. I was expecting to learn a great deal and was a bit disappointed in that aspect. There is a ton of interesting...More

When traveling to New Orleans, you should check out this museum dedicated in honoring those who served our country by enlisting in the military. The artifacts collected and shared are priceless!

A rainy Saturday in December might have added to the crowds, which were large. First thing, BUY tickets before hand, it will save you a lot of time. A few observations, this complex is HUGE, and a lot is still under construction. Wear comfortable shoes...More

This was a lot of fun and perfect for a cold rainy day. It's worth going even when it's a beautiful day. Count on spending 4-5 hours there and needing more time to feel like you scratch the surface. Very very neat

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

No you do not have to purchase them in advance, but if you go at busy times you might want to since there can be lines. But the lines move quickly.
