    Best phrase in the whole museum: "yes, there may be problems with freedom, but the solution has never been to take freedom away". This museum is absolutely amazing, I wish to come back ASAP!

    Gorgeous building. Heavy on the pro-America propaganda, so approach the presentation and exhibits with a skeptical mind and don't get distracted by all of the flashy displays.

    The audio tour is more like a video tour--not worth the $5 because it's hard to even find someplace quiet enough to watch a bunch of 4min videos. Prohibition exhibit (through 6/13) is great!
