Definitely a nice museum with beautiful buildings and exhibits. Big turn off for us was WAY too many touch screen and video "exhibits" and a surprisingly small (for a museum of this size) number of actual artifacts. I guess, to me, I can watch videos and have interactive experiences on my computer. I prefer to see "stuff". Other surprising thing was that there are only 4 admission ticket sales spots in the main building, so we waited 20 minutes just to get our tickets. Doesn't seem well thought out.

We went we saw and we left inspired by the sacrifices of a generation, of so many young Americans. Also disturbing what was lost by so many and the divisions within our own country. The best part was there were several WW2 veterans stationed throughout the museum offering assistance. Everyone who visits NOLA should make time for this museum.

We love WWII history and this museum really brings to life this era and the people who served. Every time we go we see something new, learn something new. We highly recommend!

I had actually visited this museum shortly after it opened, in 2002. It was the D-Day Museum then. It was very good back then. However, it has grown and improved a lot since then, and it includes 5 buildings and a couple of for fee "attractions" We spent 5 hours here and it is not enough time to see everything, but enough to get a good feel for the place. Buildings 1 (main entrance, home front exhibit, D-Day exhibit) and 3 (Road to Berlin and Road to Tokyo) are the heart of the place. Building 2 has a gift shop, a restaurant (pretty good though not special), and is the location for a faux USO show (which we did not attend). Building 4 has the USS Tang experience (good but not great) and an interactive media exhibit with polls regarding ethical questions posed during the war era. The museum is very well-done. The only drawback is that is centers on the AMERICAN experience. So, topics like the Holocaust, Dunkirk, the Battle of Leningrad, Chinese involvement in the war, etc are glossed over. We had a very full day and learned a lot. Highly recommend!
