Very nice tour guides . Very informative and entertaining . We will repeat similar tours in different cities .
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.
The Beyond All Boundaries movie was fantastic. Well worth the price of admission.
Love the World War II museum! It has been done so well. From the set up of the museum, to the 4d film experience narrated by Tom Hanks to the simulation of a submarine in battle, with you participating as the crew, it is a do not miss experience.
Everything was perfect. I loved it more than I expected I would!
Excellent museum, need much more time than ne day to see what is there as of today. When they are done with all of it you will definitely need more time
We were staying at a hotel on Canal St. and found that the museum was close enough to walk, about 3/4 mile, so very centrally located. We thought the museum was very informative and respectful. All exhibits are a "must see". The movie presentation narrated by Tom Hanks takes your breath away. Gift shops were reasonably priced. Sorry that we ate breakfast, so did not get to eat in the soda shop. Note that there are two new pavillions opening soon, Fall 2014 and early 2015. Hope to get back to see those. My father served in the North Atlantic and I wish that he was still alive to visit this museum. It is a great tribute and addition to New Orleans.
Ecellent, could have spent all day there. So much to see and read about.
This museum is not to be missed. The highlight is a 4D film by Tom Hanks depicting battles from WWII. Your seat is wired to vibrate so you feel as if you are in the action. The exhibits are also first class.
Excellent spent over 7 hours at museum and still did not see all displays Great interaction with guests and dispays
This tour was very intense and emotional. The exhibits were informative. I think the men an women who served at very stressful time and we should all study this history so that the same thing will never happen again.
My husband is a real history buff so visiting this museum was a must. We both enjoyed it. The movie Beyond All Boundaries was excellent. The stories and exhibits were very well done.
Awesome displays but was very crowded and disorganised. There is some construction going on and this added to the confusion.
I love the trip to the ww 2 museum. the uss tang was a highlight of my trip.
Very interesting displays, movie was great and a must see. The submarine experience was also entertaining.
The exhibit was wonderful and the all inclusive ticket provided (finally) was well worth it. However, the rude staff together with the long lines and poor info almost made us leave BEFORE we got in! We book this tour from our hotel and actually had to call VIATOR to complete the booking as there were some computer issues. I specifically asked my VIATOR rep if I needed to print the ticket and he said no-- as long as the code was on my smart phone we would gain admittance. NOT! The staff at the museum insisted on a hard copy and when I asked THEM to print it out or to look it up on the VIATOR website, They refused insisting that I print it out! (this after waiting for almost 30 minutes on line -- leaving my husband on one line while I finally found the WILL CALL line which was much shorter) BTW You should tell your customers to go straight to the WILL CALL line RATHER than the regular (usually much longer line. I asked the "supervisor" of the ticket office to call VIATOR to confirm payment and our entitlement of benefits but she refused to do that too ( rudely - I might add) Finally even though we were at an impass - they gave us our tickets and off we went. The lines for each exhibit were horrific but this was due to the record breaking crowds. The weather was rainy and it was the only "indoor" activity in the area. BUT the 40 minute movie narrated by TOM HANKS was terrific and well worth the extra ticket fee which was included in the VIATOR full ticket. We spend hours at the museum and due to the crowds didn't see everything. We were very grateful that because of the record breaking crowds the museum actually remained open an extra hour to attempt to accommodate everybody. I would definitely recommend this museum PROVIDED that better communication between VIATOR , the museum and the clients occurs with respect to how to gain admission. The rating is not for the quality of the museum as much as it is for the poor customer relations and crowd control
