The National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, is often called the D-Day Museum since that is its web address. The museum opened on D-Day (June 6) in 2000. But more than remembering a single great battle, the National World War II museum remembers the entire conflict. For those who come to visit the museum each year, several accommodations sit within a short walk to the museum.

Just 0.13 miles from the National World War II Museum, Hotel Le Cirque is the closest accommodations to the museum. It is also in the Arts District and within walking distance of the French Quarter.
