A collection of interesting stuff but not heated in the winter. We about froze before we got out. They have acquired some exceptional items. Great collection of uniforms. Not a place for children because there's too much reading. We finally gave up ourselves. The Old Bardstown is pretty basic history but a lot of log cabins. Found the Women's Civil... More

We are history buffs. My husband majored in nistory and subsequently taugnt in HS. He is particularly interested in the Civil War period. This is one of the BEST CW museums we have visited!! Wonderful exhibits and artifacts displayed in a logical (and chronilogical) way. We spent 3 hours here!! ( not including the outdoor, early settlement cabins) There is... More

the displays were awesome- well-done. Also enjoyed the Old Pioneer Village. We didn't go to the Revolutionary War Museum, but the cost ($10 for adults, $5 for kids) was very reasonable.

The Civil War Museum was great. The museum detailed all the major battles of the war. The displays were laid out nicely with lots of artifacts. There were a handful of other museums close by that you could tour as well. The tickets were good for two days in case you couldn't see it all.

We found this to be a well rounded museum. They had plenty of exhibits both inside and out. They have weapons, uniforms and period clothing. We spent about an hour and a half, but could have stayed longer if we had more time.

Excellent collection of memorabilia from the civil war with some displays from WWI,WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, and Desert Storm. Time well spent if you go there. Many aspects of the Civil War are presented showing the participation of women during the war. Lots of reading as it is a self guided tour.

We were heading home from a trip to Lexington and had time to kill. I had read here how impressed people were with this, so we stopped. We were both so glad we did. I can't speak for the Historic Bardstown Village, because it was hot and we didn't want to spend time outside. But we saw the other three... More
