The National WWII Museum is a military history museum that focuses on the contribution made by the United States to Allied victory in World War II. The museum was founded in 2000, and the U.S. Congress designated it as America’s official National WWII Museum in 2003.

The museum opened as the D-Day Museum, on the 56th anniversary of D-Day, focusing on the invasion of Normandy. The Higgins boats that were vital to amphibious operations were designed, built, and tested in New Orleans, the location of the museum.

The museum is a Smithsonian Institution affiliated museum. It also sponsors a wargaming club and holds a wargame convention each year called “Heat of Battle”.

The mission statement of the museum emphasizes the American experience in World War II.
