The National WWII Museum, formerly known as the D-Day Museum, is a military history museum located in the Central Business District of New Orleans. The museum focuses on the contribution made by the United States to Allied victory in World War II.
Visitors to the museum are encouraged to allocate roughly 2 and 1/2 to 3 hours to tour the museum. An award-winning 4-D film, Beyond All Boundaries, is shown in the Solomon Victory Theater and gives the visitor an overview of the war on every front. Other multimedia displays are integrated into most of the museum's exhibits, notably the dozens of video oral histories conducted with veterans of the war by museum staff.
The museum sponsors a wargaming club and holds a wargame convention each year called "Heat of Battle".
The museum also hosts a World War II-themed quiz bowl tournament, which is televised on cox 4 New Orleans.
