  • Needs more support. Perhaps early in the season, we weren't able to experience the full breadth of what this display of history has to offer. Although we saw some interesting things, we were left pining for more... And disappointed that we hadn't seen more. How else is an ignorant population going to learn the lessons of history, when they keep finding out how little society values such? Sometimes... NO INFORMATION can be worse than misinformation.
  • A very interesting place with lots of information and you can't observe hands on work in progress.
