  • Awesome! The museum is so well laid out and informative. An extra bonus is going up in the cupola just as Buford and Reynolds did on July 1st!! Nate was our guide for that and was fantastic!! Do not miss this place!!
  • Very good. The medical floor was an eye opener, be prepared for that one it was graphic but pertinent. Well done.
