This museum is very informative of the time period that Truman was in public service with interesting personal notes along the way. They two films are well worth the time. They are doing updating construction around the grave sites at this time.

I really liked the 2 videos the library has to offer. One is shorter and one is much longer. They are both very good. The longer one includes a lot of the shorter video's material so I would suggest just sticking with the longer one....More
