About the Event

Offering a compelling blend of sweeping narrative and poignant personal detail, The National WWII Museum features immersive exhibits, multimedia experiences, and an expansive collection of artifacts and first-person oral histories, taking visitors inside the story of The War that Changed the World. Beyond the Museum's galleries, online collections, virtual field trips, webinars, educational travel programs, and renowned International Conference on World War II, it offers patrons new ways to connect to history and honor the generation that sacrificed so much to secure our freedom.

The Louisiana Memorial Pavilion

Start your Museum visit in this original museum pavilion, with a recreated 1940s train station which serves as the perfect introduction to the Museum experience, inviting guests to follow in the footsteps of new recruits on their way to war.

Additional exhibits in this pavilion take visitors into the monumental efforts on the Home Front with Arsenal of Democracy, and to the beaches of Normandy, focusing on the thousands of men and women who made Allied victory possible.

Don't miss the LCVP Higgins Boat to learn the city's connection to WWII and why Congress designated New Orleans as home to the official National WWII Museum.

The Solomon Victory Theater

The Solomon Victory Theater is home to Beyond All Boundaries, a 4D cinematic experience produced exclusively for The National WWII Museum by Tom Hanks, who narrates the film. Beyond All Boundaries features dazzling effects, CGI animation, multilayered environments, and first-person accounts from the trenches to the Home Front read by Brad Pitt, Tobey Maguire, Gary Sinise, Patricia Clarkson, Wendell Pierce, and more. The 48-minute film plays every hour on the hour, and tickets can be purchased for an additional cost.

Campaigns of Courage: European and Pacific Theaters

Follow in the footsteps on the citizen soldier in these 360-degree displays that take visitors through key settings in WWII. The galleries serve as an immersive timeline and provide a service member's view of the war.

Don't miss Road to Berlin which details the European Theater, and Road to Tokyo which details the Pacific Theater.

The US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center

Stand beside ground-level tanks and trucks, or brave sky-high catwalks for an up-close look at the WWII airplanes suspended from the soaring ceiling above. The exhibits describe the history and production of war machines, and honor service in every branch of the military. This is the story of America at war -- on land, in the air, and at sea -- told in a way that will fully engage the senses, the mind and the heart.

The John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion

Get an up-close view at some of the Museum's extensive collection of macro-artifacts, and learn how STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) helped solve some of WWII's toughest problems.
