    Museum has potential but they overcharge for everything (Veterans should not be charged so much for the same things we fought to protect).

  • The D-day Museum is a must do.....

    When we arrived for our first trip to NOLA, the D-Day museum was not high on our to-do list. However, after we went, it became the most memorable and rewarding part of the trip.\r \r The tour started with a review of a gentleman's personal photo album, documenting his ""extended vacation"" to Europe in the 40's. The displays did a great job of making you realize the mindset of the nation, the long odds of winning against two huge armies, and the extreme sacrifices that had to be made to ensure victory, not only by the soldiers, but by everyone in the country. We walked out feeling humbled, blessed and thankful. Really amazing.\r \r We also learned alot of facts about the aggressions that lead to the war, the political dynamic between Churchiil and Roosevelt, and heard accounts from soldiers that survivied D-Day, that landed behind the german lines with nothing but a knife as a weapon and were involved in bomber testing, etc.\r \r A stop by this museum is a must do during your trip to NO.

  • The Official WWII Museum for the United States

    The museum does an excellent job of getting the complex story of the numerous D-Days during WWII across to the lay person and historian alike. The exhibits there really do an excellent job of putting the visitor into the mindset of what it what like to experience these momentous events of WWII. An added bonus for the visitor is that you will find several veterans of WWII working the exhibit areas as volunteers. They bring their own personal experience into the gumbo mix that makes the history of WWII come alive.

  • First Rate Museum

    Every thing in this museum from the vintage vehicles to the dioramas and the films are first class.

  • AWSOME!!!

    This museum is done right. Alot of meaningfull information. Museum is seperated into the war in Europe and war with Japan.

  • Disappointed

    My grandfather was involved in D-day so I was wanting to see this museum. I was disappointed. Not enough displays and too much reading.

  • Outstanding

    A most informative and educational museum. I am of the age that I can relate to most of the exhibits. The experiance was very enjoyable and one that I plan to repeat.

  • Illuminating

    One of the best museums of its kind outside Hawaii.
