American History Museum Re-Opening


I went to the made-over American History Museum this morning, and though there are some really interesting things, it's not that much different from what was on display when I first went to the museum back in 2004. I love the abstract flag outside the Star Spangled Banner, and I always like looking at Julia Child's kitchen, but it wasn't as amazing and compelling as I'd hoped. Has anyone else been since the reopening?

I was randomly surfing TNG and saw a link to this blog of yours. So I figured I'd take a look and drop a note. :-) As you wrote in your Blade article the museum needs to pay homage to more of the gay rights movement or gay history in general. http://www.washblade.com/2008/12-5/outindc/cover/13710.cfm
