George -- it is interesting that there are only two of these in the country, and one is here, where there probably weren't too many who served (at least until the World Wars - I would think) in local area.  I will have to find time to check that out.

Gabe -- fortunately, at this time, the museum does not charge an admission fee, so the only thing we really missed was the guided tours by the director.
