The National World War II Museum
Opened on the 56the anniversary of the Normandy invasion, the National World War II Museum has been designated by Congress as "America's National World War II Museum." This museum pays tribute to the men and women who fought against oppression and celebrates the spirit of those who fought and died in World War II. With exhibits, displays, movies and artifacts, this 16,000-square-foot museum takes visitors through the weeks and months leading up to June 6, when the Allies landed on the beaches of Normandy. The museum addresses all the D-Days of WWII, and is the only museum that covers all the amphibious aspects to these attacks, including the landing craft that President Eisenhower said won the war for the Allies.
One of the best new orleans la activities and a great way to reconnect with the American spirit, inspire future generations and gain an even deeper appreciation for those who showed courage and strength in this struggle. Come visit the National World War II Museum and gain a fuller understanding of the history of WWII.
