A great visit. Sad the way the dead Confederate soldiers are remembered here. To the victors the spoils I guess. Still worth a visit.

Have an informative talk with the two men manning the museum. And they guided me to other treasures in the Nancy area. Grateful. Very much worth a visit

Disappointed to have made the drive. Saw in previous reviews that the Visitor Center isn't open Mondays -- but it's not open Tuesdays either. Wish Trip Advisor would update.

Mill Springs is a fascinating battle and the museum does it justice. The movie is good at explaining the fight. The best parts are the gentle rolling terrain and the Confederate cemetery.
