The D-day Museum is a must do..... – When we arrived for our first trip to NOLA, the D-Day museum was not high on our to-do list. However, after we went, it became the most memorable and rewarding part of the trip.

The tour started with a review of a gentleman's personal photo album, documenting his "extended vacation" to Europe in the 40's. The displays did a great job of making you realize the mindset of the nation, the long odds of winning against two huge armies, and the extreme sacrifices that had to be made to ensure victory, not only by the soldiers, but by everyone in the country. We walked out feeling humbled, blessed and thankful. Really amazing.

We also learned alot of facts about the aggressions that lead to the war, the political dynamic between Churchiil and Roosevelt, and heard accounts from soldiers that survivied D-Day, that landed behind the german lines with nothing but a knife as a weapon and were involved in bomber testing, etc.

A stop by this museum is a must do during your trip to NO.

The Official WWII Museum for the United States – The museum does an excellent job of getting the complex story of the numerous D-Days during WWII across to the lay person and historian alike. The exhibits there really do an excellent job of putting the visitor into the mindset of what it what like to experience these momentous events of WWII. An added bonus for the visitor is that you will find several veterans of WWII working the exhibit areas as volunteers. They bring their own personal experience into the gumbo mix that makes the history of WWII come alive.

A massive dedication to ordinary men and women who sacrificed their lives and did the extraordinary during World War II. – Overview
The exhibit is a winding path with displays, artifacts, taped testimonials and hundreds of pictures depicting the road to war, the preparation for battle, D-Day and Hitler's defeat. Exhibits include: War Clouds, America Goes to War, Preparing for the Invasion, Air and Sea Assault, D-Day--The Beaches and Victory in Europe.

The Background
More than half a century ago, after three years of war against Germany and Japan, the Allied nations--the United States, Britain and Canada--launched Overlord, the largest military operation the world had ever seen. Although a beachhead was established in Normandy, and the successful landing was the first step in the destruction of Hitler's Third Reich, it was not without great human cost. On Omaha Beach alone, 2,400 American troops died in the operation's first waves. But by sunset, 34,000 Allied soldiers held five beaches, men who triggered Germany's ultimate defeat and who were bearers of eventual peace.

Disappointed – My grandfather was involved in D-day so I was wanting to see this museum. I was disappointed. Not enough displays and too much reading.

excellent – Great museum. Everyone should go and experience what the men in uniform went through to ensure our freedom. I think this should be a required field trip for every junior and high school student in our area. This museum is a living history. It makes one appreciate all that these men and women went to for all of us. It makes us want to always live in peace.
