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).

    I loved it. The + : The museum is clean, not too big, well organized, full of information and interactive.They give you a card that contains a soldier's information and you can keep track of them along the way.There is always somebody available to guide you.

    WWII Observatory

    The videos were informative and atmosphere was very historic depicting images of WWII. The museum was very unique compared to other museums I’ve visited in the past.

    Good deal.

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

    Wonderful Experience

    We really enjoyed our tour of the museum and using tripshock. The best thing about purchasing tickets online was getting to skip the long lines for tickets and going straight to will call! The only con I have was wishing it had been more clear to go through "train ride" first to activate our "dog tags". I know there are other places to activate, but really didn't get that until we were leaving and then went on "train ride." Also, would have helped to have a map of the museum to follow so you can have a plan and thus, not miss any areas.

    Saved a Little on Nat'l WWII Museum in NOLA

    Fairly simple to order tickets online and it saved us waiting in a huge line at the museum. They did offer a $10 off next booking which we wish we would have known about sooner so we could have taken advantage of it while we were in New Orleans.
