Hg2 : The Hedonist

National WWII Museum

Whether you are a war buff or not, the National WWII Museum is a don’t-miss museum. Structured to tell the story of the war from beginning to end, it takes visitors on an interactive trip that includes several well-made mini documentaries as well as personal letters and diaries from soldiers. From the military buildup to the Normandy invasion and the Pacific conflict, the harrowing history is brought to life in vivid detail. The late historian Stephen Ambrose led the effort to build the museum in New Orleans, because the landing boats for the D-Day invasion were built here in the factory of Andrew J. Higgins. President Eisenhower declared that the Higgins boats were the deciding factor in the success of the D-Day invasion. Check the schedule of interesting lunchtime programs.
