Tuesday marks 80 years since Pearl Harbor. The surprise attack in Hawaii on Dec. 7, 1941, prompted the U.S. to rush into World War II. More than 2,400 people were killed.

Now, The National WWII Museum in New Orleans has a new special exhibit called "Infamy: Pearl Harbor Remembered." Here & Now's Scott Tong learns more about it with senior curator Tom Czekanski.
