Museum Campus Guide
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.

A special exhibit examining the work of artist, illustrator, and political cartoonist Arthur Szyk will be on display at The National WWII Museum starting September 1, 2022. In Real Times. Arthur Szyk: Art & Human Rights will showcase more than 50 of Szyk’s original works, which focus on humanitarian issues that faced the world in the early 20th century—including issues that remain relevant today. In Real Times will remain on display through May 7, 2023 in The Joe W. and Dorothy D. Brown Foundation Special Exhibit Gallery.
The Real Image of War: Steichen and Ford in the Pacific
The camera’s use of chemistry and mechanics married with the human perspective created one of the most powerful tools of war and art—and an invaluable resource for recording the memory of World War II. By demonstrating the technology of the camera, using dramatic imagery and footage of everything from combat to the ordinary life of the US Navy sailor, The Real Image of War will probe the supposed objectivity of documentary photography and examine the motives of the men behind the camera who created a visual record of the war in the Pacific. The Real Image of War will be on display March 17, 2022 – January 3, 2023 in the Senator John Alario, Jr. Special Exhibit Hall.
