Mama read that it was best if she bought the tickets ahead of time, so after a struggle to get those because many times were sold out already, she secured them for May 25th at noon. The folks expected it to be crowded because they allow 350 people an hour inside. Mama said it was packed!
They waited in line for 15 minutes to go through security and then a few minutes to get their "43" stickers to show they belonged in the museum.

Mama saw a statue that she meant to take a photo of when she went outside, but she forgot and they didn't pass by it when leaving. It was President Bush and his father, President Bush. She is still upset that she missed that photo opportunity.
There were several short films to watch, but the lines were just too long. The folks said they would like to go back in a few years when it is not so crowded.
