What's Next At The National WWII Museum

Already a compelling tourist attraction and national destination, The National WWII Museum is in the midst of a $400 million expansion designed to elevate the Museum experience to new heights.

On tap for the Museum's expansion plan is renovation of the original Louisiana Memorial Pavilion, construction of the Hall of Democracy pavilion for academic and outreach programs and additional exhibit space, and construction of the Liberation Pavilion, focused on end-of-war and postwar experiences.

    The soaring Bollinger Canopy of Peace, set to stand 150 feet tall, will unify the Museum's diverse campus and establish the Museum as a fixture on the New Orleans skyline.
