An altogether compendious place covering the D-Day operations of WWII in exquisite detail, this museum does a fabulous job of bringing history to life. If that sounds boring to you, it shouldn't. The exhibits and analysis are top-notch, and so well presented you're likely to forget that you're actually learning something!Recommended for:History Buffs

Take time out of your trip to spend at least two to four hours touring this museum with full-sized tanks and planes inside. The videos, commentaries, and artifacts will have you amazed. (Don't forget to bring your camera, you'll want it.)

The D-Day Museum, now known as the National WWII Museum, opened after Stephen Ambrose wrote the book, Tom Hanks did the movie, and Spielberg did the mini-series. As with each of those preceding projects, the museum is first rate.
Louisiana and its swamps is the home of the Higgins boat, the flat-bottomed boats used in the D-Day landings and your entrance to the museum is through one with its ramp down, immediately pulling you into the museum. The rest of the museum is similarly well-constructed and presented.
