  • About

    The National WWII Museum tells the story of the American Experience in the war that changed the world—why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today—so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn.

    Originally founded in 2000 as the D-Day Museum, The National WWII Museum is now the top-rated tourist destination in New Orleans, TripAdvisor's #3 museum in the country, and an unforgettable way to experience World War II to connect to history and honor the generation that sacrificed so much to secure our freedom.

    Designated by Congress as the official WWII museum of the United States, The National WWII Museum is located in downtown New Orleans on a six-acre campus, where five soaring pavilions house historical exhibits, on-site restoration work, a period dinner theater, and restaurants. A capital expansion program includes the construction of two additional pavilions in coming years, cementing the institution as a state-of-the-art educational institution and a premiere destination for travelers from around the world.
