    What is there to say that hasn't been said. Though as far as museums go, there's a lot of reading and video watching. Not many displays.

    Very moving museum. Be sure to view the permanent installation and the story of the children. Sadly it's disrespected by the various student tour groups. Avoid them to truly experience the museum.
