Its worth educating self with the history and some after impact to the human lives based on discretion made in earlier days. Lot of pain and efforts were put by the ancestors and knowing them would somehow encourage and inspire to do some good in the society. The world is leading to evil, there is always the necessity of sensible and lovable human to balance the equation. We went as a corporate group and had a good educational informative time. Mr Bryan is a volunteer in the museum in his 70s and good enough to guide you the best way. I admire him for his work. Regards GG
This museum is a "must" for gaining perspective on and understanding of a difficult (to say the least) time in our history. It didn't strike me as being about blame, but about educating and encouraging ALL of humanity to communicate, understand, and respect ALL of humanity. There are parts of the exhibit that are intense, but we cannot hide from nor dismiss these parts - look them in the eye. It hopefully will lead to acknowledgement, confession, forgiveness, and healing. I am amazed at the courage and determination of Americans fighting for their rights during this time - and afterwards, truly! Don't leave before seeing the top floor which leads visitors to expand their perspective and awareness of our world.
