Would be nice if they would invest a little into more things to fill up the museum, utilize the other two floors, have audio on the displays for young ones can listen to the facts about what's on display, advertise it more to the public to get them interested and involved. My son anne's nephew love the military and I've been trying to teach them.the importance of it and to be proud. To teach them what our family members and friends experienced.
