Very disappointing as we drove a distance to visit only to find it closed and no one anywhere around. It was at 11AM on a Saturday morning and the sign on the door said open from 9a-3p. :-(

With a working model of the CSS Albemarle based out back on the river , a caboose, a freight car and the Museum building itself, an attractive location next to a park this is a great stop for something unique in American history. The interior displays are original items from the era, including smokestack, cannon balls, various equipment and an able staff to help with your questions. Definitely a STOP! 👍👍

Been a while since I'd been here...kinda forgot how cool it is...if your a fan of the Civil War like most of us Southerners are.. I think of this place every time I pass the ironcade on the river. I think they still charge $3 bucks for adults.. Worth every penny..Tie the Battle of Bentonville NC with the Battle of Plymouth you can clearly see how bad our ancestors wanted to keep the Yankees out of North Carolina... (Maybe not as much as we want to today...Yankee's have ruined Raleigh)

Thoroughly enjoyed the small museum, great unique artifacts from local sunken ships and the battle. Helped to have some familiarity with the civil war for the exhibits. The museum is in a old train station. Don't miss stopping by the ironclad model outside!

Minimal entrance fee, really well done exhibits, suggest watching the "longer than 4 minutes" 4 minute video first...will help set the stage for the rest of the museum. Nice exhibits of ordnance, photographs, flag, etc. 3/8th scale ship is pretty cool too, but you cannot go on board that....display from a far only.
