World War 2 Museum, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review
Wow! What a well-conceived, artfully-constructed, intriguing approach to a museum. My husband and I went together on a free museum day this year and LOVED our experience. Although comparable to the quality of Smithsonian Museums in Washington D.C., I would never pay the $20 or so entrance fee requested at this museum. Definitely worth an exploration though if it's in your budget. Lots of multimedia and visual teaching aids in addition to uniquely designed rooms to represent each country's participation in the war.
Nice museum. Recommend planning visit for more than one day. Food was delicious at both restaurants we tried. Guides are helpful and incredibly knowledgeable. We went on D Day anniversary. Probably should avoid major holidays to enjoy touring without crowds. Very well designed and managed facility. Even on one of busiest days of year, bathrooms were clean, staff was great, parking was convenient. Buy tickets online before going to avoid long lines at ticket counter.
Absolutely amazing! Everything is so detailed and well played out. The separation of the different campaigns let's you appreciate what was involved in each one. If you go, you have to watch the 4-D movie. It's definitely not something you want to miss. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to explore. You'll need a full day to take everything in.
An awesome place to take a tour of. So much history and detail. Not to mention the size of the place. Only thing i had a problem with was the ladies attitude where you pay for the tour and the way some of the employees act that walk around. The employees that walk around don't really seem to care for talking with people that are walking around, and aren't very helpful at all with information. And the lady at the front desk had an attitude from hell. I guess she didn't like my questions. Like "Is this where we pay, what do we do from here, how much is it?" Seems like a legit question for a person who has never been there before.
Recommend spending at least one full day, but could early more be. Use the free dog tag experience. Nice restaurant and bar in site. Highlight for kids is the Boeing exhibit with tanks and real planes hung from the warehouse ceiling that can be viewed both high and low. Well done and a museum that every American should visit.
