Consistently ranked in the top 10 American museum experiences, the National World War II Museum delivers epic insights into the battles and everyday heroes of World War II. Located in New Orleans because it was home to Higgins Industries, the manufacturer of the landing craft that delivered U.S. troops onto the D-Day beaches, this CBD must-see will appeal to history lovers and anybody passionate about military lore. Interactive exhibits including Campaigns of Courage: European and Pacific Theaters, and the Road to Berlin bring the people and places of World War II into sharp focus. For even more insight, reserve a spot at Dinner with a Curator at American Sector, a regular evening of historic conversation illuminated by chef Eric Cook’s inspired Southern comfort cuisine.
Tip: Have drinks at the American Sector, the swell 1940s themed bar and restaurant adjacent to the museum.
