In the midst of an election... I truly believe as an American, this gem should be visited. Okay, I'm an older dude, grew up with a father who was a Danish resistance fighter and grew up in a country crippled by WW2.
The Museum itself is a monument to the sacrifice of a free world.. extremely humbling.
The exhibits themselves will be difficult at best to take all in one day. However, it's definitely worth a couple of visits. The price of admission gets you a walking audio tour which is nice. No over sale there. The actual boards and exhibits are easy to view and you can take you time viewing what you wish. Layout is well designed and the stuff is pretty dang neat.. albeit the fog of war is very much upfront. They have some huge items.. a submarine, a plane, jeeps, guns and uniforms and interactive displays.. and this is just in the Bush wing.
The ticket price is good for 48 hours, so you can come back the next day and view the bits and bobs you may have missed or didn't have enough time on your first visit. They have guided tours available on the hour, which I will definitely come back to check out. The complex is very large, so I cannot imagine getting everything in the first time in. There is much learning here, even for the seasoned military geek and a must see if you happen to be in Fredericksburg..
