A truly thought provoking and memorable place. Lots to see and walk around. Our daughter enjoyed walking around the trench and carrying her back pack around the arboretum. A place every one should visit!

The NMA is a wonderful place to visit & is a must if in the area. There is so much history. The new extended facilities make a big difference. I highly recommend the Arboretum.
