Don’t miss this movie...for which reservations are needed. It’s excellent! Could spend a lot of time here.....and suggest not trying to absorb too much on one visit.

We went 2.5 hrs before closing. You need more time that this to take it all in. It is somewhat confusing tracking down your dog tag character. Museums like this also give pause for thought as to why we allow such atrocities to happen -...More

If you go to th his museum you would think that WW2 started in December 1941 and that the allies were only there to support the American troops. What an insult to the allied forces who had been fighting the war with the active disservice...More

What an amazing experience. Make sure you do this in NOLA. It was the highlight of the trip. Very easy to navigate. I am a huge fan of WWII history but I learned so much.

I had heard amazing reviews about this museum and they were all on point! The museum highlights both the South Pacific and European portions of the war in a chronological, interactive way. A must see while in New Orleans.

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
