WORLD WAR II MUSEUM (New Orleans, LA) |  View Map

The World War II museum has hosted more than 1.7 million visitors since 2000. Approximately 50% of visitors indicated that the museum was one of their top two reasons for visiting New Orleans. The multi-phase redevelopment and expansion of the World War II Museum is now a six-acre campus of exhibition pavilions that includes a 250-seat theater, a United Service Organizations-themed restaurant and performance space as well as major street improvements that will, in effect, quadruple the square footage of the outdated facility. NNMF funded this project because of the multi-level economic impacts to this blighted area. (NNMF NMTCs: $6.25 million)
