I tend to get museumed out quickly due to so much reading but this museum held my interest. Still lots of reading but they have done an excellent job of portraying both sides of the war. The displays of the uniforms, weapons, camps were all excellent. What really got to me was the display of working on a wounded soldier and it made you realize how far we have come in the medical field and why so many soldiers died of infection or disease. It's heartbreaking knowing how many gave their lives and it makes you realize you ended up in either the Confederate or Union side pretty much on where you lived. They have a computer or data base that you can look up people from the Civil war. I was disappointed that I was not able to find information on my great and great great grandfather that joined the Confederate side and they were living in Florida at the time of the war. Put this museum on your list of things to do while you are in this area.
