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, and construction of the Liberation Pavilion, focused on end-of-war and postwar experiences.
Bollinger Canopy of Peace
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.
Three building levels will explore the closing months of the war and immediate postwar years, concluding with an explanation of links to our lives today.
