Museum experiences

Locals and tourists alike have raved about the National War II Museum since it opened on D-Day – June 6, 2000. Powerful images and extraordinary artifacts bring to life the American Spirit, the courage, teamwork and sacrifice of the young men and women who won the war and changed the world.

The New Orleans African American Museum is located in the Tremé section of New Orleans, a neighborhood that was once home to the nation’s largest, most prosperous and politically progressive community of blacks by the mid-1850s, NOAAM is dedicated to the preservation, presentation, and interpretation of the culture of the African Diaspora.

New Orleans cuisine

There is not enough time to enjoy all the food options of New Orleans. The ABA staff will be frequenting the Café du Monde for beignets and chicory coffee. Or, if you have been craving gumbo, red beans and rice, and other traditional New Orleans foods, search the many dining options.
