“Welcome to History from Home, The Historic New Orleans Collection’s online portal for curious explorers and dedicated students of the past. While we’re stuck at home during the COVID-19 outbreak, that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop preserving and presenting the history of New Orleans and the Gulf region. This page is your entry to a variety of THNOC projects, from educational resources for families, research tools for students and scholars, to fascinating stories from the archive.”
“Offering a compelling blend of sweeping narrative and poignant personal detail, The National WWII Museum features immersive exhibits, multimedia experiences, and an expansive collection of artifacts and first-person oral histories, taking visitors inside the story of the war that changed the world. Beyond the galleries, the Museum’s online collections, virtual field trips, webinars, educational travel programs, and renowned International Conference on World War II offer patrons new ways to connect to history and honor the generation that sacrificed so much to secure our freedom.”
