Did New Orleans Win World War Two? The National World War Two Museum Fills Us In – Video

New Orleans houses the National World War Two museum. This is one of the best museums I have ever been to. And that includes those in Europe as well. I guess it means a lot to an American and especially to a New Orleanian.

Andrew Higgins, who built the Higgins boats that were used as landing craft for the D-Day Invasion was, was named by General Dwight Eisenhower as being the guy who won the war. Those boats were built by thousands of New Orleans citizens in the same area where the current museum now stands.

This museum is so interesting and so extensive that it would take all day if not two to see the whole thing. I’ve been there a few times for three hours each time and that is not nearly enough to take it all in. I have yet to see the new buildings, exhibits and movies available at the museum and can’t wait to get down there to check it all out. This video gives you and idea of what’s in store for the visitor.

Heart-wrenching, fascinating and inspiring, it is all that a truly great museum should be.
