Valuable and unique artifacts, maps at every display, detailed explanations, huge collections, memorable stories.
This was a pleasant tour and look at the local history in fine detail. Learning the history through their presentation of displays is a good lesson.
Being on a road trip, I only had time to see and visit the Civil War Museum of this little complex. So this is my take on that portion. Bardstown Civil War Museum is probably one of the better private museums on the Civil War I have seen. And I have seen quite a lot. I was quite amazed by... More
