"The Millennium Gate Museum tour was very exciting and the guide was excellent as he took us through the historical journey of Ambassador Young and answered all my questions. In the end I learnt about his milestones and the impactful life he lead. My key takeaway from the tour was his father's quote "Do not get mad be smart". It was a pleasure to take the tour of the museum."
