In December 2014, the National World War II Museum opened its new pavilion and the exhibit The Road to Berlin.
I was lucky enough to get a behind-the-scenes look, and it was spectacular. It's a whirlwind of multimedia, expert (down to the most minute detail) staging, and real stories that give you a sense of the war, minus the glossy Hollywood polish.
This museum is a destination in and of itself and a must-visit for anyone heading to New Orleans.

Homage to The Greatest Generation
Tucked into the artsy, yet commercial Magazine Street neighborhood of NOLA lays humbling WWII exhibits. Historical artifacts of the Allied and Axis powers abound in every inch of this three-building museum that ensures all of its multi-generational visitors see, hear, and never forget the sacrifices - small and large scale - of those considered to be America's Greatest Generation.
