Great WWII Museum in New Orleans!

We just visited the World War II National Museum in New Orleans, and what an awe-inspiring experience!

As history buffs ourselves, we spent the entire day absorbing each and every exhibit that took us from ‘America Goes to War’, the ‘Train Car Experience’, ‘D-Day Invasion of Normandy’, ‘D-Day: The Landing Beaches’, the Pacific campaign... through to the ‘Stage Door Canteen’ where the Victory Belles paid tribute to all the WWII-era performers who helped entertain and inspire the troops during those dark, hard-fought days. We remembered through precise details of each display, moments of experiences from our fathers and great grandfathers — and it made us very proud to be Americans.

We discovered too, that many display pieces we saw in several exhibits, had also passed through our doors at Billings Army Navy Surplus, right here in Billings, Montana.

What an incredible salute, American history at it’s finest — and a museum not to be missed. We highly recommend adding this to your travel plans. It earned the 2013 Travelers Choice award, and is ranked #7 among the top museums in the U.S.

We know we’ll be back!
