THE LABORDE SERVICES GALLERY
The Laborde Services Gallery pays homage to the 16 million men and women who served in the US Armed Forces in World War II.
Made possible through gifts in honor of Alden, John, Lucien, & C.E. Laborde
Interactive exhibits in Command Central highlight the roles of all the branches of the US Armed Forces and how they worked together to secure victory. Visitors can use touchscreen technology to explore major battles and campaigns, and to view maps, archival images and associated weaponry.
Hear the stories of life in World War II told by veterans themselves — focusing on the universal themes of Why We Fight, Experience of War and Military Life. These personal accounts from the Museum’s expansive collection are inspirational, emotional and sometimes even humorous. The words of these humble eyewitnesses to history make it clear to visitors that the war was fought by real men with faces and personalities — a lesson made even more poignant by the fact that so many did not get the chance to grow old and so many more have left us without sharing their experiences.
Made possible through a gift from Superior Energy Services
In a war where so many gave so much, and some gave all, the 471 Medal of Honor recipients hold our nation’s highest honor and esteem. The Medal of Honor exhibit gives visitors the opportunity to see the faces of these brave men, read about their actions and even search for recipients by state, service branch or theater of operation.
Made possible through a gift from the Goldring Family Foundation & The Woldenberg Foundation
