About the WWII Museum
Formerly known as the D-Day Museum, the National WWII Museum, located in the Central Business District of New Orleans, is a major landmark in our great city. The museum focuses on the contributions made by the United States to Allied Victory in World War II. Maintaining affiliation with the Smithsonian Institute, the museum opened its doors in June of 2000 and includes life-size bomber planes and other war aircraft, as well as tanks, bombs, boats, machinery, and countless heart-felt memorabilia. The museum is open to visitors daily with new exhibits showing on a regular basis.
