    I have never been to this World War II Museums, but I have been to several in Normandy, France. The reason why they choose New Orleans was because the landing craft used in many of the amphibous landings in the Pacific and at Normandy were made in a warehouse in New Orleans by a fellow named Andrew Higgins. General Eisenhower once said this man was instrumental in winning the war. The other reason the museum is located here was because Ambrose was a professor at the University of New Orleans.

    Great post and thanks for letting me know the place is worth a visit. I have been to New Orleans a couple of times, but both times before the museum was there. I need to go back.

      Ted, you are correct about the WWII Museum’s location. They have a whole exhibit dedicated to Higgins and the history of the landing craft. Clearly NOLA is very proud of this local son 🙂 Definitely check out the museum next time you are in town… but make sure you leave plenty of time. We could have spent a full day there!

    I’m not into war museums (I’ve been to a few), but this one sounds worthy of a visit!

      Definitely check out the WWII museum in NOLA! I’m sure you would appreciate it, with your family history of serving in the US armed forces.
