New Orleans' WWII museum project enters next phase
POSTED 29 Mar 2012 . BY Tom Walker
The US$300m (226m euro, £189m) expansion of the National WWII Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, US, has entered the next phase following the topping off the US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center.

Scheduled to open later this year, the US$35m (26m euro, £22m) US Freedom Pavilion will be home to a broad variety of exhibits used by the US military during WWII.

These include a number of restored airplanes – such as the heavy bomber B-17G Flying Fortress – and an interactive submarine experience based on the final mission of the USS Tang. Exhibits will also tell the human story, highlighting the contributions of all the branches of service in WWII.

The next phase of the expansion will be the establishment of a set of new permanent galleries called Campaigns of Courage.

Scheduled for a 2013 opening, the 31,430sq ft (2,900sq m) galleries will explore the Allied campaigns in Asia, the Pacific and the European theatres of war.

Exhibits will examine the evolving strategy for fighting on two continents while delving into the cultural differences and extreme weather conditions that service members faced.

Visitors will receive an imprinted "dog tag" allowing them to follow the journey of an actual participant in the war. Guests will be able to track the actions of their "character" through a number of interactive kiosks throughout the exhibits for a more personal and engaging view of the war.
