The extensive, heart-wrenching museum should satisfy the historical curiosity of anyone with even a passing interest in WWII. The museum presents an admirably nuanced and thorough analysis of the biggest war of the 20th century. Of particular note is the D-Day exhibition , arguably the most in-depth of its type in the country. The new 4-D Beyond All Boundaries film, narrated by Tom Hanks and shown on a 120ft-wide immersive screen in the new Solomon Victory Theater , is a loud, proud and awesome extravaganza well worth the extra $5. Chef John Besh's casual American diner, the American Sector has also been added here – make it a day.
