The National WWII Museum is a remarkable must-see attraction in New Orleans that illuminates the American experience in the war that changed the world. Ranked the #1 Attraction in New Orleans, the Museum’s collection of artifacts, interactive exhibits, and moving personal stories conveys the war’s epic story in a way that informs and inspires, educating today’s generations about the price of freedom and honoring those who gave so much to secure it. Self visit our LA Memorial, US Freedom and Campaigns of Courage Pavilion. Start your visit in the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion which features galleries on D-Day in Normandy, special temporary exhibits and the HomeFront. Follow in the footsteps of the American citizen soldier in the Museum’s newest pavilion, Campaigns of Courage Road to Berlin and Road to Tokyo Exhibits. Look up from ground-level tanks and trucks to view WWII Airplanes or brave the sky-high catwalks for an up-close look in our US Freedom Pavilion. See preservation in progress in the glass-fronted John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion (tours and access limited – Inquire at guest services).

Beginning December 26 through January 2, 2018, the Museum will open 30 minutes early, at 8:30 a.m. for your enjoyment!

    Wonderful Experience

    Hands down, the best museum I've been to. Immersive, engaging, and full of interesting information. Everything is communicated in a way that draws you in and is extremely easy to follow.

    Moving experience.

    My husband and I were impressed with this museum! The visual/audio depictions are well done; making one feel as if you are there. We highly recommend this to everyone going to New Orleans.

    Good deal.

    We very much enjoyed the museum, however this deal did not include the movie, which was a bummer.

    Awesome museum! Will go again!

    We had a wonderful time. Our only regret is that we didn't set enough time aside to see everything. Plan at least 6-8 hours if you want the full experience. They have not one, but TWO bombers hanging from the ceiling in there!!!

    Not all attractions on here are discounted

    Was excited to find this site and get discounted tickets to the WWII museum which starts at $26 a person but there were no discounts to be had. However, I was able to locate a code from another site to receive 15% off at Trip Shock, which definitely helped. Got two tickets with tax for $47. Went on Sunday and the tickets worked fine. I do wish they would have a better ticket retrieval system, though. As it stands now, I not only have to print the tickets from Trip Shock for my attraction, but they include colored background and photos on the 2-page ticket that eats up printer ink. In this day and age, should be able to show ticket on phone. If not, ONE page in black and white would suffice. Don't need photos/images and colored backgrounds. I will use Trip Shock in the future, but do hope... read more

    Melissa, Thank you for this review. Please note that WWII museum requires guests to print from all online ticket resellers, not just TripShock. We hope that this changes in the near future when the accounting system is upgraded.

    Must visit .... WWII Museum

    Very much enjoyed spending a day at the museum. The special traveling exhibit "State of Deception -The Power of Nazi Propaganda" was eye opening. Learning from our history is so critical to insure we do not make the same mistakes and the museum does a great job at making this history come alive. It's focus on letting visitors experience event through the eyes of those who lived it is a big part of how they accomplish this.

    WWII - New Orleans, LA (NOLA)

    I would rate the museum as a 5, but the day my family was there, it was very crowded (not even a weekend, it was a Wednesday). Too crowded to really see many of the displays. The volume of people slowed the flow down. We were told the museum was going to be open an hour later. However, that only turned out to be the movie theater because they added another viewing. Which didn't help us since you are a given a movie viewing time when you get your museum entry ticket. So ours was set at the last normal viewing time (one before the specially added one) . After it was over, we had about 8 minutes to check out the Boeing center (not enough time at all) & then we were escorted out the door. What a disappointment.
