The National WWII Museum in New Orleans opened on June 6, 2000, as The National D-Day Museum. The Museum tells the story of the American Experience in the war that changed the world. In 2003, Congress officially designated us as America’s National WWII Museum.
Jaffe Holden faced a few challenges in designing the acoustics for this museum. Office spaces are located right next to the restaurant/bar area, so in order to ensure proper acoustic environments for both areas, our firm worked to create sound isolation and noise control in the respective spaces.
Within the Solomon Victory Theater, there was the challenge of taking into account the noise created by the rumble seat which provides the audience with a lifelike experience. Acoustics in the theater had to be adjusted accordingly.
