My trip to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans


Three months ago my wife and I flew to New Orleans to visit the National World War II Museum, which is one of the top five museums in the US and by far the best museum dedicated to WWII in the world. It took two full days to even superficially see all the exhibits, and I was able to meet with Chris Michel, the director of purchasing and the museum store. He was impressed with my book, We Were There, and it is now on sale there!  

The museum is more than a city block in size with at least four separate buildings (so far- there is still a lot of construction going on there). There are over a dozen vintage WWII airplanes on display. I took so many pictures that I have not yet completed the editing. I hope to have an album of images from the museum to view on my website soon. Keep checking back to see!
