The National WWII Museum highlights

The Arsenal of Democracy – as the newest permanent exhibit at the museum, the Arsenal of Democracy plays an important role in the museum’s storytelling. Through the multimedia displays and first-hand accounts, the exhibit aims to humanize the soldiers and allow visitors to relate to and connect with people who lived in 1940s America.

Road to Tokyo – this display examines the cultural differences, logistics, and challenges of the American war against Japanese forces during World War II. The artifacts and short films showcased at this exhibit tell the stories of American GIs in a foreign land who forged a road to Tokyo.

Road to Berlin – follow the war through the countries of Europe. Listen to personal stories that paint a picture of the struggles in Germany, the campaigns against Axis powers and more. The galleries highlight battles in Italy, North Africa, Germany, and the Mediterranean.

The D-Day Invasion of Normandy – this is the oldest exhibit at the museum and tells the riveting story of D-Day from beginning to end. Learn about the planning by the Allied forces beforehand. See artifacts and belongings of D-Day soldiers from that fateful day in 1944.

US Merchant Marine Gallery – peruse the profiles of merchant mariners who risked their lives transporting weapons, troops, and supplies during World War II.

US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center  – stand beside ground-level macro artifacts to view iconic WWII airplanes—or brave sky-high catwalks for an up-close look. Exhibits describe the history and production of war machines and honor service in every branch of the military."

John E. Kushner Restoration Pavilion  – get an up-close view at some of the Museum's extensive collection of macro-artifacts, and learn how STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) helped solve some of World War II's toughest problems.

The National WWII Museum facts

  • WWII was the largest and most expensive war ever, and so was the aftermath, as most cities had lost major industry and been turned to rubble by aggressive bombings.
  • The Higgins boats, or Landing Craft Vehicles, were amphibious boats that made the landing on the shores of Normandy possible at D-Day. These boats were made in New Orleans by shipbuilder Andrew Higgins.
  • There were 291,557 American casualties in total after the war finished.
