I think the citadel is a 5 but have rated the museum a 3. There is so much history and pride here but it sort of goes flat at the museum. I think the museum is a side indulgence of the commanders but I think linking the public to interact in some way with the pride and history of the Citadel would be meaningful. I think the Citadel has a lot to offer and it does not come across in just the museum visit.

The campus has alot of history and was very impressive. We were met at the entrance by a cordial cadet that seemed genuinely proud of his school. There is a giant class ring that makes for a great picture along with the buildings.

Whether you have a Welty of military knowledge or not, visiting the campus of the Citadel is beautiful. The parade grounds surrounded by the barracks are a sight to see and the Summerall Chapel is spectacular!
