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.
One of the Museum’s most successful and longest running programs is its annual WWII High School Quiz Bowl in which teams of local high school students compete in a preliminary and then a final championship round of WWII knowledge and trivia. This fierce competition was captured by YurView, and can be seen here.

This year’s two top competing teams hail from Holy Cross High School of New Orleans, Louisiana and Catholic High School of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. For both schools, this would be their inaugural Quiz Bowl championship.
Which of these teams comes out the champion? You can watch the Final Round show on YurView in Louisiana and Florida. Check local listings for times. Or, watch it right here:
Located in the heart of New Orleans, Louisiana, the Museum that would become The National WWII Museum originally opened as The National D-Day Museum on June 6, 2000 and focused on telling the story of the epic D-Day landings of June 6, 1944. In 2003, The National D-Day Museum was designated by the United States Congress as America’s official National WWII Museum.
Tasked now with the responsibility to tell the story of not only D-Day, but every theater in the war including the Home Front and the war’s aftermath, the Museum has been expanding ever since and now comprises a six-acre campus set to be completed in Spring 2023. The National WWII Museum is a Smithsonian Institution affiliate and welcomes thousands of visitors, veterans, teachers and students every year.
