Even though I/m a yankee, I was given a "Yankee Green Card" for the day by the proprietor. Anyone who has an interest in American History should go there. Donations are accepted. I gave them $20.00.

I thought that this museum would be a small place with a few exhibits. I was wrong! This place has one of the largest collections of Civil War era arms that I have seen. It is located in a small house in a residential neighborhood, but it is a first-class museum. There were a couple of docents there, and both... More

Wow, expected to spend about 1/2 hr there since it looks small, but our visit lasted more than two hours and we enjoyed every minute of it. Ken offered to explain some of the exhibits to us if we wished, we said yes and are sure glad we accepted his offer. We learned a lot more from him then we... More

We were very impressed with the museum and library. We were given a private tour by an excellent guide/storyteller. It was awesome to have someone be able to give you little known facts about many items.

This Museum is located in a residential area in a large Victorian house. The many displays are well done presenting the history of the Confederacy. Clothing,firearms and swords, medical equipment and various items of furniture and personal goods are displayed. Period photographs with written descriptions help tell the story, but the big plus is the stories and information the docents... More

At first glance, the museum looks tiny. But once you go inside, it is steeped with historical artifacts, pictures, books and information pertaining to the Civil War. My children liked seeing the Confederate money - and that the bills looked slightly different from state to state. I enjoyed that there were various fact sheets you could take with you to... More
