POI listing of most naval/maritime museums in the US.
This is my first POI, so feel free to make suggestions or comments. This was based largely on the Naval and Maritime Museums List by Joseph Poutre (http://www.bb62museum.org/usnavmus.html). I worked off this list, looked up lat/long, verified addresses and phone numbers. If I did my grep right, there is 104 entries. Let me tell you, it's pretty cool to look up lat/long on terraserver and seeing the hull numbers from satellite!
With description consisting of address, phone number, as well as listing of any relevant museum vessels (e.g. USS Intrepid CV 11).
Since there tend to be long descriptions, let me know if I need to do any reformatting.
