This museum is amazing, there are so many parts to explore and they did a fantastic job of creating specific sections for each theater of the war and really went into detail to explain what and where everything took place. They give you a fun and entertaining walk through experience with each place you visit and really draw you into the events. Very entertaining and educational. I saw several people who were there that actually served in the war and it was humbling to see their expressions and emotions while watching videos. They also have a 4D theater that's pretty awesome and helps make you feel like you are there. We also ate lunch their at one of their restaurants and the food was delicious. I'll definitely be going back because even after 4 hours of being there we didn't see everything there was to see. It's a must visit if you are in New Orleans.
This is absolutely one of the best museums I've ever been to! The World War II museum is a must-see if you're in New Orleans. Plan on it taking most of the day if you want to see everything. There's a cafeteria with some food if you need to take a break halfway through. I recommend adding on the movie tickets also. It was definitely worth it. Make sure you leave time for all the airplanes in the Boeing hangar! You won't be disappointed!
My husband and I are huge WWII buffs. He prides himself in collecting weaponry from this era. The layout of the museum is awesome. Multiple buildings house specific era or events from the war. While still under construction, the accessibility is easy to maneuver and the layout of each display are so well done. The airplane exhibit is astounding and so well constructed. I has 4 levels, could have been 3 I was in awe, that allow you up close and personal from any angle or height. Please take the time to visit! Such an amazing day!
This was the most impressive museum I have ever visited. Besides being incredibly massive, it's so well detailed. The information is informative but presented in the form of a narrative that keeps you engaged. There are tons of personal accounts attached as well to remind you of the people that were a part of this war. The layout of the museum is set up almost like a movie set to make you feel like you are physically there. I recommend this to everyone regardless of age.
Whether you know a lot about WWII or you know very little this place is amazing. The place is huge and it takes awhile to go through(4-5 hrs) but it's worth it. The exhibits are interactive and some of them try to make you feel as if you are there with the troops while you learn about the events. One of the buildings has airplanes suspended from the ceiling and you can view them via catwalks around them. This place was fantastic and a definite must see.
