This puzzle is part 3 of Gladys' journey across the globe. If you're new to the series, feel free to start at the beginning: "Introducing Gladys".

Dear Puzzling,

Today I visited an important historic site from the Civil War era. This is the first of many museums I expect to be seeing on my trip. The puzzle looks a little like a tyrannosaurus wearing a cook's hat, don't you think? Have fun! I'll write you again soon from my next destination.

Wish you were here!
Love, Gladys.
