We toured this with our son, who is an MP. This is very interesting. We enjoyed seeing all the history of the Chemical Museum and learning about it. Our great nephew is an engineer in the Army.

We went without our soldier while we waiting to see him, then took him back once he was with us. It's a great museum to visit! Wonderful information, great staff and fabulous gift shops. Don't miss it!
