I cannot remember the gentleman's name there, but he was very informative on all things in the museum. We were there for an hour and learned lots. Lots of displays etc. Will go again. Everybody should visit it at least once!

We visited there on Aug 25. It is a small museum. The children loved wearing the general uniform and took photo. Awesome!
