My children really loved seeing all the history of the museum. They especially loved the outside section of the museum. It's hard to believe that soldiers lived inside these small bungalows. We really enjoyed all the artifacts from the civil war. It's a great place for people of all ages. There's so much history that we didn't even know happenened... More

Who would have thought that we would find such a fantastic museum in Bardstown, Kentucky? It was such a great surprise. We loved it. It is extensive, well organized, with good clear exhibitions. We spent around 2 hours there. There is quite a bit to see. A wonderful museum if you love the civil war or just history in general.

DO NOT GO!!!! The reactors that are a part of that cannot be trusted. They are gun happy and choose which spectators to let into camp and which ones not too. There captain is a bombastic sour puss who sticks his nose in everybodies business and makes it difficult for people to enjoy themselves. If you do go, DON"T say... More

This is a very well done civil war museum.. Not so large it was hard to cover. Very well done, displays are interesting and just the right amount of reading and looking. Very informative in a short amount of time at the museum. Staff was friendly and happy to see us, not just selling tickets and going through the motions... More

This is a very good museum, be ready to do a lot of walking. There is cabins outside that you can walk though and there is different part of the museum. It will take a couple of hours to look at everything. The cost is only $10. which includes 3 different museums.

My husband is well read on the civil war so this was a must see for our family. If you really wanted to you could easily spend several hours here taking it all in. Our boys were not quite as engaged after about 45 minutes they were ready to go but they stuck it out a little longer for us.... More

For a small town, this Museum was loaded with artifacts and memorabilia; cannon, drums and uniforms. The photos, paintings and correspndences were nearly Smithsonian-worthy.

It is the Ladies civil war museum and very limited on displays and not a lot to see. Sure not worth 10,00.

We were very impressed at the collection of Civil War items displayed in this museum. Your ticket includes all the museum areas. It is very well laid out and so many interesting things to read and see. I would not miss this when in Bardstown.
