Museum is fairly new and is all about WWII. Not only does it discuss battles, weapons, the war but it also focuses on the women during WWII. They have interviews with nurses from WWII and many women who were Rosy Riveters. Takes about 2 to 3 hrs to go through it and watch movies and listen to the oral history. Handicapped accessible.

When we arrived for our first trip to NOLA, the D-Day museum was not high on our to-do list. However, after we went, it became the most memorable and rewarding part of the trip.\r
\r
The tour started with a review of a gentleman's personal photo album, documenting his ""extended vacation"" to Europe in the 40's. The displays did a great job of making you realize the mindset of the nation, the long odds of winning against two huge armies, and the extreme sacrifices that had to be made to ensure victory, not only by the soldiers, but by everyone in the country. We walked out feeling humbled, blessed and thankful. Really amazing.\r
\r
We also learned alot of facts about the aggressions that lead to the war, the political dynamic between Churchiil and Roosevelt, and heard accounts from soldiers that survivied D-Day, that landed behind the german lines with nothing but a knife as a weapon and were involved in bomber testing, etc.\r

A stop by this museum is a must do during your trip to NO.

The museum does an excellent job of getting the complex story of the numerous D-Days during WWII across to the lay person and historian alike. The exhibits there really do an excellent job of putting the visitor into the mindset of what it what like to experience these momentous events of WWII. An added bonus for the visitor is that you will find several veterans of WWII working the exhibit areas as volunteers. They bring their own personal experience into the gumbo mix that makes the history of WWII come alive.

My grandfather was involved in D-day so I was wanting to see this museum. I was disappointed. Not enough displays and too much reading.

Great museum. Everyone should go and experience what the men in uniform went through to ensure our freedom. I think this should be a required field trip for every junior and high school student in our area. This museum is a living history. It makes one appreciate all that these men and women went to for all of us. It makes us want to always live in peace.
