What You Can Expect

The National WWII Museum Ticket New Orleans

National WWII Museum

Journey through time to WWII — the war that changed the world — with a visit to New Orleans’ National WWII Museum. Make your way to the museum and head straight inside with your entrance ticket. Upon entering the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion, explore its multiple exhibits featuring D-Day and Home Front histories and view an authentic C-47, or hop aboard the mini-train to one of the other exhibit spaces.

The train is a lasting symbol of military transit of the wartime era. As you ride to one of the other collections, imagine the plight of WWII soldiers as they went to war. Disembark at the Campaigns of Courage collection, where you get the American soldier’s eye-view of the war through 360-degree displays of key settings and dog tag stations with story points. Continue to the US Freedom Pavilion for a rare look at preserved war machines and a sobering walk through the galleries that honor American servicemen. Don’t leave without participating in the Final Mission: USS Tang Submarine Experience, a thrilling interactive tour one of the most successful WWII submarines (included with your ticket).

Next head to the Solomon Victory Theater for a complimentary viewing of Beyond All Boundaries, an epic 4D wartime documentary produced by Tom Hanks. Relax and enjoy the approximate 50-minute showing that includes first-hand accounts of life in battle and on the home front.

Explore the museum at your own pace, stopping to browse genuine artifacts, engage in savvy interactive displays, remember fallen soldiers and take needed snack breaks (own expense) in the American Sector Restaurant or the Soda Shop.

This was by far the best part of our trip. The movie Beyond all Boundaries was a true masterpiecethere were tears shared by more than just myself and gave you a small taste of what these brave men and women went through during WWII. I see why the museum is rated so high and hope to get back someday.
