I too was hoping someone would coment regarding this museum. I'd be curious to hear other opinions.

I can remember when the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg first opened. It received the same sort of criticism - too "high-tech" and snazzy. We LOVED it. Flat-screen plasma TV's, the latest in robotics, etc. I understand that many of us have very fond memories of the old-style static type museum, and they certainly have their place. But if the study of the war is to maintain its relevance, then it does have to attract the younger audience. If we stay stuck in the old ways, it'll only be us old farts paying attention. Just my 2 cents...
