This is one of the best museums I’ve visited. You could spend all day there learning about different parts of the war, not just about D-day and some of the European battles. I only had a few hours to spend, so while I was able...More
Amazing museum, this place is huge. Their collection of memorabilia is amazing. You could literally spend HOURS here. I went with a group, some of whom are currently serving in the military. I think we clocked out after two hours which was enough for us....More
I really had this place hyped up as I read how it was the #2 museum in the WORLD! So, i may have come away slightly disappointed - but, just because of the hype I think. The cost is rather high IMHO...adults $28 and this...More
Remember to include the movie, which takes about an hour, but is well worth it.
The museum is really well done and designed to give you a feeling of what it was like being part of the war. Great mix of detailed information, film, personal...More
I have a keen interest in all things WW2 - due to my age I guess. At school in the 60's all the movies were either Cowboy or WW2. This is a strictly American view on their part in the war and although they feel...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.
