Last week a friend and I visited two WW2 Museums, the National WW2 Museum in New Orleans and the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, TX. We spent a day and a half at each; both are worth visiting though they provide very different experiences. What’s been your experience visiting either of these museums?
Let’s start with the setting. The better known of the two, the National WW2 Museum, is in the tourist mecca of New Orleans, a city I don’t care for, while the Pacific War museum is in a small town in the Texas hill country an hour and a half from Austin and San Antonio. It’s no surprise the New Orleans museum has many more visitors.
