We spend three hours looking at the displays, which are very informative and well laid out. The toilets were very clean. It was a pity that some visitors did not seem to understand the horrors of war, and maybe did not want to. The gravity of the historical context was wholly minimised by some people.
There were several badly behaved and ill disciplined children climbing over delicate exhibits. The parents did a lot of shouting, but did not impose any sanctions, thus reinforcing the bad behaviour. This spoiled the visit for us. We felt that unique exhibits were being treated disrespectfully by some people, and that some displays, like the one about the Japanese WWII POWs, were being viewed in the same manner that one might play a computer war game.
We really felt that this exhibition was well thought out and well arranged. It is a great pity that some of the visitors did not learn anything, and they obviously didn't/maybe couldn't teach their children anything either.
The horrors of the past should be used to learn, so that we don't repeat those awful events in the future.
