On a recent week-end trip to New Orleans, we decided on a return visit to The National WWII Museum.  It has probably been 2 years since we last visited and there have been some amazing additions.  Since our last visit, "Beyond All Boundaries" a 4-D experience featuring Tom Hanks has opened.  The brochure describes it as "a powerful, immersive journey through the war that changed the world".  That description is so accurate.  It is located in the Solomon Victory Theater (which is across the street from the original museum).


We also attended a brunch and Christmas show at the Stage Door Canteen.  The Victory Belles vocal trio gave a wonderful performance.  It was their Christmas show so they were joined by Santa Claus.  Ironically, I was one of five chosen from the audience to participate in an on-stage performance of Mele Kalikemaka hula (after we had just spent 2 weeks in Hawaii).  The brunch was by Chef John Besh who also operates The American Sector restaurant located in the same building.


There are plans for several new additions in the coming years.


There are numerous Marriott properties that are easily within walking distance; however, there is ample parking available nearby.
