  • Nice clean museum. Takes about 25 mins if you go through the whole thing. Nice learning about general millet.would like to see about how they put the african Americans in the front of the line and the Tuskegee airmen
  • Small Museum but very well designed and with friendly staff. I particularly enjoyed the combined acoustic and visual displays which followed individual National Guardsmen/ Women and their experiences serving in different theatres of war. I would have liked to see more about the use of the guard in civil unrest but it was covered.
