Arrive early: National WWII Museum is the number one attraction of New Orleans so arrive as soon as the museum opens to make the most of your visit.
Lunch: If you want to grab a quick lunch, then avoid the smaller restaurants (as the food isn’t exactly the best) and opt instead for the full scale restaurant in the same building as the theater if you have the time.
Mock train ride: Take the mock train ride in the first pavilion and relive the experiences of soldiers leaving home to go to war.
