WWII Museum 2The National World War II museum in New Orleans runs occasional war game events as educational programs. On August 21-23, the museum will hold the third annual Heat of Battle war game convention among the exhibits in the galleries. The games to be played include miniatures, hex-and-counter games, and other board games, such as Flames of War, Memoir ’44, and Battle of the Bulge. Attendees will also be able to take advantage of several other special museum benefits. Registration for the convention includes admission to the “June 1944” special exhibit and the “Behind the Lines” tour of the museum’s vault. The tour allows participants to actually handle non-public artifacts and explore a Sherman tank.
