The National WWII Museum temporarily closed its doors to visitors on March 14 to support the City of New Orleans and the State of Louisiana’s effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We look forward to the day when we’ll be able to welcome our staff and visitors back to the Museum, but in the meantime, our work continues online.

During these challenging times, we look forward to bringing the Museum and its inspiring stories of courage, perseverance, and service to your home. We’ll share content and resources from our collection along with historical programs, online educational content, and new original content produced by our team of experts in the WWII Media and Education Center, Institute for the Study of War and Democracy, and Collections and Curatorial Department.

This library of resources embodies the Museum’s mission to tell the story of the American experience in World War II and what it means today. That mission feels more important now than ever before as we face this unprecedented challenge as a nation.

We encourage you to continue to engage with us online, where we will continue to publish oral-history video accounts from WWII veterans, online teaching resources, STEM activities for kids, podcasts, live webinars, and much more. Access to our online programs are free, but we encourage you to consider supporting our Museum during this challenging financial situation.
