D-Day: the national WW II museum

"The 16,000-square-foot gallery of The National World War II Museum is divided into four, state-of-the-art, interactive exhibits that intermix oral histories from veterans worldwide, artifacts, documents and photographs with hands-on activities and never before seen film footage. These series of exhibits take Museum visitors through the weeks and days leading up to the D-Days of World War II to the foggy morning of June 6 when the Allies landed on the beaches of Normandy to the other decisive air and sea assaults that led to victory in Europe and the Pacific." Contains permanent and online exhibits. Museum is located in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I love this resource! I have a number of colleagues that deal with WW2 and I will steer them in this direction. I especially love the fact sheets and the supporting bibliography.
