Yeah, I'm looking forward to this.  It's about four or five miles from my house, and I used to commute by bike past the construction site when I worked on Fort Belvoir.  When I had that job, one of the guys in our division was a volunteer with the museum, and he arranged a small tour of the warehouse for us, which was very impressive.
