  • Disappointing for a Cavalry perspective, just a good old school museum, with old displays not offering enough detail. Some items just don't belong there, like a bicycle of some 101 yr old man. The last directional sign to the museum location was hidden behind an overgrown bush. Would like to know if the 88th glider unit that trained there in WWII accomplished their mission. If it was in the display I didn't see it. Pleasant young lady running the admission desk and gift shop was the only high point.
  • lots of history, saw were my wife used to live, the cemetery's are amazing, the old one's, the new one is a National one, might get buried there, thought about that, good self guided tour, better having someone who used to live there, thou
