Anyway, I loved going to the museums and I remember they had the biggest exhibit of US money and I enjoyed looking at all the stuff I would never own. They also used to have a medical museum that that I believe moved to a base outside of DC....mind is drawing a blank right now....that had preserved specimens of every conceivable part of the body you could imagine, including fetuses at all varying stages and some cool Lincoln stuff from when we was assassinated and other memorable stuff.
Could you imagine how absolutely astounding and awesome it would be if they could devote a whole museum to all the money they have in their collection and put it on display?
It literally stopped me in my tracks.
I was set up beautifully.
If so, it's a work in progress.

Do you any more information or is that just from memory? I'm curious as to when the new director/curator began or any other information that may elude to an estimate of reopen.
I was there to see the collection and it was also one of the last days for the Rube Golberg display
