  • Recently visited the d-day museum

    I went to the D-Day museum around Easter but just joined so figured i would talk about it

    it is a really great museum and since I live an hour away for New Orleans it is pretty close

    I really enjoyed the museum and spent 4-5 hours walking around

    after the 4-5 hours of walking around I went to see a movie in their theater

    I can't wait until they add on the museum will be hugeeven though it already is)

      Out of curiousity, why is a D-Day museum located in New Orleans?
      A massive attack...a brigade against an army...three nights of battle...an unforgettable tragedy.

        I imagine it is because they took part in the landings! Seriously though I do see the point you are making but it must save thousands of Americans a lot of time and money, they do not have to cross the Atlantic do they!

          Here is why

          The Museum was built in New Orleans because the 2 guys who started collecting all the items you see there, lived in the area and they thought what better place to have a D-Day Museum than to have it built where Jack Higgins built a lot of the landing craft used on the D-Day Invasion.
          By the way the main guy involved in all of this was none other than Stephen Ambrose.
