The film was very good, shame the last paragraph by the new regime had to be included but that's politics I suppose. Well laid out.

I think it should be visited before walking around the sites around the penninsula, you will have broader understanding of the battle, read and watch and see documents and artifacts from the epic battle.

Visit this museum after you have done the battlefield tour and you will better understand and appreciate the sheer waste to life that this display puts into perspective. The simulation display over 11 different theatres is particularly good.
