“A very nice local museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Good exhibits. Displays are very informative and tasteful. It's just nice to know that a community with as interesting a history has such a nice place to display it.

Civil war exhibits, etc, Courthouse museum was cool, clean and staff very helpful. Plus it was free, though donations are accepted.

“Small but packs a wallop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Viewing the restoration to the court house alone should entice you to enter this museum. They have painstakingly restored this building from horrendous 1950's floor tiling and leaded paint to its original beauty.

While there are displays for many of our nation's wars, the civil war exhibits are as numerous as any I have seen even in DC. These are originals and not reproductions. I was amazed at how much they had packed into their small area while still being able to move around and fully appreciate each professional display.

There is also a wonderful quilt that a number of county ladies made showing different aspects of Henderson history and culture. The docent took much pride in each loving stitch. I wondered if she was one of the humble contributors.

Well worth the time spent in this small but first class museum.

“Well Done Historical Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

This museum had a very interesting exhibit on the Civil War when we visited. It was fascinating to get an "up close" look at the conflict from the perspective of a community that was deeply affected.

“This is a war museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Lot's of war history spanning several wars, with guns and uniforms. It's free and worth a walk thru.
