The story of the glider pilots in WWII is largely unknown despite their heavy casualty rates. The National World War II Museum opened on June 6, 2000 as The National D-Day Museum. The New Orleans Museum official changed its name in 2006 after being officially designated by Congress and America's official World War II Museum. Visitors enter the Museum through the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion where they are greeted by some of the “workhorses of WWII”, a C-47, Sherman Tank, SBD Dauntless, a replica of an LCVP and rotating displays from the Museum collection.
