Unbelieveable collection, going back centuries. Weapons, Chinese ceramics, and contemporary exhibits highlighting moments in history. Especially good for young people to learn about history.

Come in and go back in time! Museum is clean and spacious. The displays are quite interesting. Give yourself plenty of time to look, listen and learn. Accessible to travelers off I-20 or Hwy. 431. Hours are convenient and there are plenty of activities to keep your mind and bodies busy!

Enjoyed visiting the Museum on my last stop to Anniston. A good bit of history and knowledge of the area was conveyed. Worth the stop.

From a former military service member it was a comforting fact that we have not lost sense of our history.

This museum is so worth the very modest entrance fee. I al out hate to review it, lest someone ,some place, hear if it, visit it and decide it needs big city exposure! It is an absolute fabulous/ fairly diversified museum. Well preserved, and evolving.

This small museum in NE Alabama is worth the trip. It is composed of two major private collections, plus additional acquisitions. The highlight for me was the complete set of Remington bronze sculptures. In addition, there are personal WW2 artifacts the original benefactor acquired at the end of the war, including Hitler's silver service. The second collection is Asian art,... More

This museum contains a collection of guns from the last two hundred years, swords and a Chinese museum with a fabulous collection of jade. It is an excellent museum for everyone, a real history.
