The National World War II Museum
The National WWII Museum, an expansive campus of exhibition pavilions exploring the war that changed the world. The epic conflict brought to life with powerful personal stories, the 4-D "Beyond All Boundaries" featuring Tom Hanks, rare artifacts like Boeing's B17 Flying Fortress, and "Final Mission: The USS Tang Submarine Experience." An experience for all ages, plus live musical entertainment at the Stage Door Canteen and delightful dining by Chef John Besh in the American Sector restaurant!
From the West: Take I-10 to Hwy 90 then exit at "St. Charles Avenue". At the second light after the exit ramp, turn left onto St. Charles Avenue - that will take you back underneath the interstate/bridge. One block later, you will come to Lee Circle - all traffic on Lee Circle goes to the right, so you will turn right to enter the circle. At the first right, which is Higgins Drive, you will turn right. The main entrance is on Higgins Drive between Camp Street and Magazine Street.
