"National D-Day Museum" National WW2 Museum Tip by Jmill42
National WW2 Museum, New Orleans: 18 reviews and 33 photos
This museum is the national shrine to those who died in the D-Day invasion of WWII. It has many short films and interactive displays, along with recorded personal accounts from verterans themselves. It has an abundance of real artifacts from the war, and it takes you through many different viewpoints. From privates all the way to General Eisenhower himself, the museum sheds light on the way it was and what the partcipants felt like through all types of situations. It really does provide revelations into what these guys went through. My favorite part is the short movie about the days leading up the invasion and all the choices that Eisenhower had to make himself. He states something to the effect, "If this fails, it is all on my hands." Then the next thing you see, is his actual diary, where he wrote the passage. Pretty powerful.
