    Not too far away from where I currently live, there's a tank museum, which hosts a good collection of old tanks from the history. The guest is allowed to photograph inside. Ironically due to a military base just nearby, the first open sign I saw right on the location is a "No Photos" warning.

    I felt the same way. Now that they decide to relocate this museum, it's going to be closed down in future.

    Thanks, Chris.
