Fantastic history of wartime with some excellent tanks, helicopters and jets that were left behind. A little harrowing at times but so it should be. Closes from 12-1pm for lunch so plan around this.

A very interesting display about the "American war" . It is a bit disturbing. Sometimes another perspective helps one understand there is always more than one point of view. Very well put together and worthwhile .

Two hours is ample time to view, we were there a few days ago and wandered around at our leisure. We visited here before heading to the palace which opens at 1pm. Enjoy.
