FIND THE EXTRAORDINARY INSIDE
In September only, Louisiana residents can visit our immersive galleries for 50% off, so now is the perfect time to see what's been added since you've last been—or to discover this world-renowned institution for the first time. What started as a single building dedicated to the D-Day landings has become a soaring multi-pavilion campus covering the complete American experience in World War II—but it's still right in your backyard, waiting for you to find the extraordinary inside.
City and state guidelines continue to evolve rapidly as the situation around Covid-19 unfolds. Before you visit, please visit nationalww2museum.org/know-before-you-go for the latest updates to visitation requirements.
SOLDIER | ARTIST: TRENCH ART IN WORLD WAR II
The National WWII Museum’s newest special exhibit, SOLDIER | ARTIST: Trench Art in World War II, takes an in-depth look at the military pastime of creating art, souvenirs, and tools out of discarded materials and the waste of war, a practice that yielded pieces known as "trench art." Featuring more than 150 artifacts representing the various forms of WWII trench art, as well as background on their origins and creators, SOLDIER | ARTIST offers a unique opportunity to see physical products of servicemembers' resourcefulness and ingenuity in the field. Curated by the Museum’s Tom Czekanski, SOLDIER | ARTIST will be on view in the Hall of Democracy’s Senator John Alario, Jr. Special Exhibition Hall from March 4 to January 2, 2022.

Designated by Congress as the official WWII museum of the United States, The National WWII Museum is located in downtown New Orleans on a six-acre campus, where five soaring pavilions house historical exhibits, on-site restoration work, a period dinner theater, and restaurants.
Housed in four buildings, each arranged around central themes of the war, Museum exhibits offer visitors an opportunity to experience the war through the eyes of the men and women who lived it. Interactive features, oral histories, and personal vignettes add a meaningful perspective.
