    Upon further consideration, I think it needs to go in the Smithsonian. :grin:

    No, but it's the finest museum complex in the world, IMHO. :wink:

    lol - it is very very good, but it does suffer (as many museums do) from poor lighting.

    Or at least it did when I went, a few years back.

    I think that's due to the bad effect strong artificial lighting has on the exhibits. The Greensboro Museum has a nice collection of Civil War weapons, and the display cases have motion detectors fitted, so that they are lit only when someone is actually standing in front of them.
