New Orleans, Louisiana National World War II Museum

The National WWII Museum opened on the anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 2000. The museum was the brainchild of the late best-selling author Stephen Ambrose, and was originally planned as the National D-Day Museum. It offers in-depth historical accounts of all 19 amphibious operations on D-Day, as well as an extensive collection of artifacts and educational material. The unique exhibits focus on personal stories and reflect on the soldiers as individuals. The museum also features a one-of-a-kind panorama to allow the visitor to feel the scope of the famous beaches from that fateful day.
