House is rather small and the docent told us much of the furniture was not original to the home but rather had been donated? There were some nice gun, rifle and sword displays and lots of documents if you enjoy reading those types of things. We spent maybe 20 minutes here.

Of the many historical locations I've visited, this was the most informed guided tour ever! Mr. Baxter knows his history, and all the back story, unique trivia, and inside perspective on the Civil War and the importance of Paducah in the outcome of this era in history. Could have listened to him for hours! He obviously enjoys his work!

Small museum but full of history. Enjoyed the talk by the gentleman who runs the museum. Definitely worth the time to tour for anyone interested in the history of the Civil War.

This was the last day of our Civil War explore of Mississippi. We were on our way home and decided to spend a couple nights in Paducah. We thought we'd be spending maybe an hour tops in the older house that has been made into a museum. Had we been just looking through the house on our own, that probably... More

I have been a history buff since my first visit to Shiloh National Military Park in the early 70's. I love looking at old houses and to hear the stories of the people that resided there. it is a small 5 buck fee. I paid 10 because I want to see this place again when I return. The older gentleman...

This modest but authentic slice of history was worth the time spent. The visit had a definite Paducah slant, which I appreciated. A great way to spend a few hours.

Stopped by this Museum when in Paducah for the Quilt show. Our group learned lots of little known facts about the Civil War and loved the upstairs tour with the quilts.

This museum was a collection of Civil War memorabilia and could only be understood with a guide. The documentation was poor. However the staff had a passion for this little museum and were very willing to explain and answer questions

This restored old home is full of Civil War items, stories, and pictures. This is a gem and "must see" if you enjoy history. Even though Lloyd Tilghman was a Confederate general, the museum tells the story of both the North and South in the Civil War. The manager gave us an excellent tour -- he is most knowledgeable of...
