I took my parents here while they were visiting- Mom is a nurse and Dad is an archaeologist, so perfect place for them! We found ourselves splitting off and reading things that interested us and spent a couple hours there. I am in the medical field and was amazed at how much the Civil War shaped hospitals and medicine today. This is a very clean very organized museum and I recommend for age 12 and up. Little ones would lose their minds here. It is in a great area of restaurants and unique shops- just a great way to spend the day. Beans and Bagel directly across from here has wonderful coffee, homemade muffins, egg croissants, etc.
