The National WWII Museum tells the story of the American Experience in the war that changed the world—why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today—so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn. Originally founded in 2000 as the D-Day Museum, The National WWII Museum is now the top-rated tourist destination in New Orleans, TripAdvisor's #3 museum in the country, and an unforgettable way to experience World War II—from industrial efforts on the Home Front to the combat experience of the American soldier abroad. Offering a compelling blend of sweeping narrative and poignant personal detail, the Museum features immersive exhibits, multimedia experiences, and an expansive collection of artifacts and first-person oral histories to take visitors inside the story of the war. Beyond the galleries, the Museum's online collections, virtual field trips, webinars, travel programs, and renowned International Conference offer patrons new ways to connect to history and honor the generation that sacrificed so much to secure freedom.

Asset class exposure is achieved primarily by selecting and engaging external managers.
