For details, you'll probably take a whole day!
The main exhibit does not allow photography so it's all stuff that hasn't been seen before. Also you can download the app on your phone and have a voice guided tour. I used wireless ear phones and split them between me and my husband. Turned out great! So moving and respectful. Well done!
