this museum provides a unique and engaging view of WWII. Both my parents were in the war and it made this trip back in time that much more special. A must see in New Orleans.

The museum keeps expanding and there is so much to see and do that it is almost impossible to complete it in one day. It is definitely a world-class museum.

Fan-freaking-tastic time at the ww2 museum. We were there for three hours and felt like we only scratched the surface of this sprawling theater. Can’t wait to go back to experience the immersive 4d exhibits!

Be sure to get your tickets ahead of time! The area while you’re waiting to see the Tom Hanks film gets very overcrowded! We did enjoy the exhibition and the films

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

No you do not have to purchase them in advance, but if you go at busy times you might want to since there can be lines. But the lines move quickly.
