The National WWII Museum Reviews
We went here on our last day in Nee Orleans. The museum stowed our luggage which was perfect as we had to be out of our rental early. Allow at least 5 hours to visit, but all day is better, especially... more »
Imaginative multi-sensory experience. A must-see for every citizen. Pay the extra fee to see the IMAX Film narrated by Tom Hanks. Expensive, but well worth your time and money. more »
Every time I come, there seems to be an addition to the exhibits. Something is always being added. I have come several times, on my own and with people. The 4-D movie (seats move, water sprays) makes you feel like you are experiencing WWII first hand. I really love coming here. Upon entry, you can get a card for a soldier and find that soldier throughout the exhibits, so it really keeps you on your toes. Everything is so detailed and life like. Again, something has been added with each visit. And the Canteen, which is where you can come for lunch and or dinner is always reasonably priced and good food. The gift shop always has something I really want. I really like bringing visitors and coming by myself. Make sure you head out to the lake to see the PT boat and ride on it. You will not regret that!
Awesome experience! One that everyone should experience. It's not just an American history (although much of it is), but everyone needs to remember the past and the "superiority complexes" that led to global warfare. Thought it did an excellent job portraying both history & personal stories. You could EASILY spend 2 days here. Don't miss the "Beyond All Boundaries" movie experience!
