National WW2 Museum, New Orleans: 18 reviews and 33 photos
As a woman, going to a museum dedicated to D-Day and WWII was not something that I thought would hold any interest for me - was I ever wrong! Granted, the tanks and planes on display were more interesting for the men in my party, but this museum has so much more.
There was a gallery depicting "The War at Home" which showed the sacrifices of the men, women and children back on the home front, including ration cards and household goods of the era. There was another gallery displaying propaganda posters - from the US and Japanese perspective. There are booths which play the video memoirs of many WWII veterans - they are short and should hold a child's interest.
I spent 2 hours here and could have spent more time. Check out their website to see what is the current exhibition, but definitely go.
