Particularly liked the section on the role of women in the independence movement and also during the American War. Powerful personalised stories brought the struggles they faced to life.

Excellent museum, gives you a very good insight with regards to women's roles during the war and in modern society. Just the right amount of information so you leave feeling like you have learned something rather than being overloaded which can happen in some museums. Highly recommended.

Was a nice musueum with 5 floors - really liked the women in war display. Not going to blow your socks off - but definitely worth a visit if you have time.
