I expected a typical war museum, heavy on the field pieces, machinery, and guns. I was pleasantly surprised by a museum that focused as much on the human experience as on the tools used. Half of the museum is devoted to the years before the American entry into the war, and half on the latter part of the war and the piece. Exhibits and films did a wonderful job of capturing the social and politicial environment before, during, and after the war - on the front and back home.
The only downside was expected: very light coverage of the theaters that did not include Americans or Brits. But even those were touched on well enough for the tastes of most of us.
