New Orleans, WWII Museum

Postby wenestvedt » Wed Mar 14, 2012 12:55 pm

My best friend and I are visiting New Orleans (me for the first time) in a couple of weeks, and I have a couple of questions.

- Has anyone taken the "Behind the Lines" tour at the WWII Museum? Is there anything special I should make sure to see? (We plan to spend much of the day at the Museum after the 9:00-noon tour.)

- Are there any other particularly interesting things in the rest of the museum's collection?

- We have some time on Friday evening, plus Saturday evening and the early half of Sunday. While avoiding Final Four fans (I *swear* that we didn't know about this event when we picked the weekend) is there anything we must do besides eating ourselves senseless?

- Last, it's Palm Sunday and I have enjoyed going to Mass in strange cities before (even when i don't speak the language). Any R.C. churches close to our hotel in the French Quarter?

Thanks in advance for any advice!!

- Will

The Cathedral is in the French Quarter. Head to the river. Across from the Cafe du Monde. Its large and white, so its hard to miss! :)

Yes Will, the Cathedral would be a great choice. I haven't been to the WW11 Museum since before Katrina and although I understand the artifacts were preserved I don't know how the exhibits are currently set up. Perhaps you can post a full report.
