  • The museum opened its doors on June 6 2000, the 56th anniversary of D-Day. The museum is located here because this is where the "Higgins Boats", vital to D-Day operations were designed, built & tested
  • make sure to watch the movie, you won't be disappointed!
  • Seek out Higgins boat, which was designed and built in New Orleans. Youll learn why the shallow-draft 36-passenger transport got credit from General Eisenhower for winning the war! -Travel Editor
  • Everyone should go to this museum and spend at least one day... then go across the street and eat the American Sector, John Besh's restaurant.
  • Make sure to really check out the propoganda displays in the Pacific section. Incredibly fascinating!
  • A recent addition to the museum is the Road to Berlin: European Theater Galleries, which illustrates the struggles to defeat the Axis of power through historic artifacts and period newsreels.
  • go to cochoon butcher while you're in the area!
  • Very well done. Genuinely a moving experience.
  • Beyond all Boundaries, the Tom Hanks 4D multi-sensory film, has actual war footage. Some of which is graphic. View discretion is advised. Fourth grade school age and up are usually fine.
  • Plan on getting to the museum at 9 am when it opens. It will take you from 3 to 5 hours to walk through the exhibits. Also get your tickets to Beyond All Boundaries when you get your museum tickets.
