What You Can Expect

The National WWII Museum Ticket New Orleans

National WWII Museum

Head inside New Orleans’ National WWII Museum with your entrance ticket and start exploring the captivating exhibition space at leisure. Focusing on the fallen American soldiers of WWII, the museum was set up to recognize and celebrate the American spirit during the war—a time typified by teamwork, courage and sacrifice.

After heading through the entranceway, step aboard a mini-train and travel to the museum’s main war exhibitions, just as WWII soldiers would have caught a train as they went to war. The building is arranged into different collections, with each showcasing a range of artifacts from WWII. Read the information stands as you walk around, and browse uniforms worn by the troops as well as medals, weaponry, diaries, letters, original black-and-white photos and more.

The museum also boasts interactive discovery zones and a movie theater that bring war stories to life. Head inside Solomon Victory Theater to see the animated 4D Beyond all Boundaries, a movie narrated and produced by Tom Hanks that documents life in the trenches and on the Home Front, from a selection of first-hand accounts.

Your entrance ticket also includes an interactive experience at the museums’ US Freedom Pavilion: the Boeing Center, called ‘Final Mission: The USS Tang Submarine Experience.’ Taking place on board a replica of USS Tang, one of the most successful WWII submarines, the experience involves you joining a patrol and being enlisted with wartime tasks to help you navigate the ship’s final battle. It’s a thrilling insight into the story of Tang’s final mission when her crew were involved in risky engagement with the Japanese.

How long you spend inside the museum is up to you! If you are hungry or simply want a break from exploring the exhibits, visit the on-site American Sector Restaurant or the Soda Shop. Food and drinks are at your own expense.

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.

My husband and I toured The National WWII Museum on February 28, 2015. The museum was fairly crowded that morning around 11:00 when we arrived. I felt flow was a little rushed, especially since the early movie times were strongly encouraged. We interrupted our tour to go view the Tom Hanks narrative. It was very entertaining. Next, we moved toward the submarine experience. I have to say that this was my favorite part of the museum! The experience is a must for anyone, especially if you have kids. Afterwards, we went back to the museum to conclude our tour.
