That looks awesome, although I'm somewhat sad that I won't be in the DC area when it opens! I just recently visited the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History and they have an exhibit called "The Price of Freedom: Americans at War" (I talked about my trip briefly here: http://lolaberly.blogspot.com/2009/01/day-26-last-few-days.html). I'll repeat what I said there -- having been to the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning, I was set up for disappointment. I think the Smithsonian is more about telling a story than simply displaying breathtaking artifacts, but that's just my opinion. Anyway, I think I'll definitely put this museum on my must-see list once it opens!
I've been out to "The Farm" and its awesome! Seeing all the tanks in working order is great. I even have a picture of myself up on a Soviet T-34 or T-72 (I have a hard time identifying them) holding an AK-47 surrounded by guys dressed up as a Soviet Tank crew.I can't come CLOSE to telling you how cool it is to be able to get up close to these things. The amazing thing, the gentleman who owns the Virginia Museum of Military Vehicles (I think it was called that at one time) did most of these restores with his own money and the help of volunteers.
