“Memorial Museum” — is something of a contradiction in terms...
“Museums are about understanding, about making meaning of the past... A memorial fulfills a different need; it’s about remembering and evoking feelings in the viewer, and that function is antithetical to what museums do.”
Reconciling the clashing obligations to recount the history with pinpoint accuracy, to memorialize heroism and to promote healing inevitably required compromise.
No one anticipated how much. — New York Times
