Hi Kwee,

I think it is beautiful and different looking building. It reminds me of a castle on the front side. Thanks for sharing and I think it was exceptionally nice that you put the volunteer's picture in the post too. It makes it more personal and warm. It is also a plus that it is free. Thanks for sharing a nice museum with US history. I love history.
