AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Dedicated to telling the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world, the National World War II Museum is the only museum of its kind in the country. World War II buffs can happily spend the entire day here, and anyone with the slightest interest in the war will find it fascinating to wander around for a few hours. The massive museum encompasses more than 70,000 square feet and features include mini-theaters, oral history stations, Higgins landing craft, vehicles, weapons and more than 6,000 artifacts. The new Victory Theatre features WWII films in 4-D technology (3D plus physical effects and movement). WWII-era music and dance productions are performed at the Stage Door Canteen and there's even a full service restaurant.
