The National WWII Museum offers discounted admission to locals

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Building on the popularity of last year, The National WWII Museum is showing its appreciation to local supporters by offering discounted admission to Louisiana residents.

This September, locals will be able to enjoy the Museum’s exhibits and galleries for half the price of regular Museum admission,.

A general admission ticket offers visitors access to galleries inside Louisiana Memorial Pavilion, US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center and Campaigns of Courage: European and Pacific Theaters, which features the Museum’s newest permanent exhibition Road to Tokyo: Pacific Theater Galleries. Retracing the grueling trail that led from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay, Road to Tokyo explores the evolving strategy for fighting relentless Japanese forces in Asia and the Pacific, examining cultural differences, logistical challenges and the staggering range of extreme conditions that confronted American military forces.

Trip Advisor named the museum the third best museum in the country.

In order to receive the September discount, residents must present a valid Louisiana driver’s license at the Museum’s ticket counter. For an additional $5, visitors can also choose to include Beyond All Boundaries, a 4D journey through World War II, or Final Mission: The USS Tang Submarine Experience with their admission. The discount – which is only available for walk-up purchases – also applies to group sales, but there is a limit of four admissions per guest. Other discounts cannot be used in combination with the promotion.
