National World War II Museum commemorates a very challenging yet invigorating time in American history. Learn about how the USA responded to the battle cry for freedom.

The newest addition in the National World War II Museum is the US Freedom Pavilion: Boeing Center. The exhibits show how the USA responded when they joined the war effort overseas. Soldiers, sailors and Marines trained and went to war while men and women stateside did their part to build the transportation and weapons of war as well as their conservation and rationing efforts. Everyone sacrificed in some way for the war effort.

Tours include the modes of transportation on display, including the Warbirds. There is an interactive display called What Would You Do, which provides information about an event during the war and then provides options for action.

The Museum and Store are open 7 days a week from 9 am to 5 pm. When you are planning your visit it is a good idea to plan to stay for about 3 hours to get the most out of your experience at the museum. You may want to plan to dine at the restaurant or the Soda Shop. The Museum closes for Mardi Gras Day, Christmas (Eve and Day), and Thanksgiving.
