WWII Museum


Has your grandparent ever told you a story and you felt like you were experiencing it first hand? That is how we felt when we were getting told WWII stories from actual veteran volunteers. They were very good at being descriptive and we appreciated their emotions. They answered every question and loved to just talk. It was an amazing opportunity to be able to personally thank the veterans for their service. If you want to know what WWII was really like, this is a location you need to visit!


There is a lot to see at this museum, so plan to spend a few hours exploring all of the buildings on the museum campus. There were a lot of interactive exhibits and I found that kids who are learning about WWII in school will be even more engaged. There is a 4D movie as well as live performances available to enrich your visit (note that there is an additional charge for these experiences.). Explore information about WWII at the US Freedom Pavilion, hear stories about amphibious landings, like the Normandy Invasion, at the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion and view restorations of WWII artifacts at the John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion. Expect to be blown away and feel a part of history!


We did a lot of research for the show! Though we couldn’t visit every destination, we did want to show you what else we found.

New Orleans Museum of Art- 1 Collins Diboll Cir, New Orleans, LA 70124 With a collection of nearly 40,000 objects, it’s no wonder NOMA is considered one of the top museums in the south! The museum contains an impressive assortment of art works from the Americas, France, Japan and even Africa.  An absolute must-see at this museum is the famed five-acre Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, one of the most important sculpture installations in the United States. The garden contains over 60 sculptures surrounded by gorgeous lagoons, foot trails, oak trees, pine trees and much more. Enjoy!
