My fourteen year old son and I enjoyed the museum. We were on a tour so we only had one hour to enjoy the museum. We really didn't want to leave.

Everyone should go to this museum. It is one of the best I have ever seen. We'll worth a visit. The photos and experience is very very good. It brings home what young men gave up and sacrificed.

Every film is in English. I cannot say when they are show in English but it seemed to be most of the time.
