The museum was closed but the town from 200 years ago was a cool site to visit. This is also a great small town to drive through and voted as such. A few miles of the highway for lunch would be worth it.

Super informative and very fun to see such old stuff. I would highly recommend a visit here especially if your into civil war stuff. There are also other awesome places in that town not even 5 minutes from that museum. Really nice and quiet town to vacation. Plenty to do.

My husband and I enjoy seeing relics from the past. We always say to bad we couldn't have lived through those years of the civil war. Definitely a neat and interesting time. The outside exhibit of the cabins was really neat!

We stopped in just because we had some time to kill! So delighted that we stopped! All displays were very well done. It is fairly small but contains a lot of special items. A must for historical buffs!

Wow! They have one of the most genuine and thorough collections of Civil War history that I've ever seen. Well organized, thoughtfully displayed. Your ticket gives you access to 4 museums and is good for 2 consecutive days.
