“bill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I enjoyed all of the items from the civil war and U.S. Grant. The pictures and descriptions of the accounts of the civil war, from Fort Sumpter to the surrender from General Lee To General Grant, were most interesting to me.

“Very Informatative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Great place to start your visit you learn so much and get to see so much of the history of Galena. Felt like any question we had someone could answer it had menu's and day trips, etc. Beautiful old building glad we went there first. Helped us firm up or plans for our visits.
