The National World War 2 Museum, located in the Warehouse District and the heart of Senate District 5, will be opening a $35 million expansion this coming week. The Freedom Pavilion will include interactive elements and historical aircraft suspended from the ceiling. From Nola.com:

Despite the furious work in progress, museum officials said the glass-fronted building will be ready to receive visitors Jan. 13. A private ceremony will be held Jan. 12 in the $35 million pavilion, whose formal name is the U.S. Freedom Pavilion: the Boeing Center.
