The entry fee is very reasonable. Everyone is given an audio player for self-guided tours. The museum is worth taking time to read some of the information provided and listen to the audio about the Battle of New Orleans. Andrew Jackson was truly a unique...More

I like that u don't have to walk thru the shop to exit like some places. The store has beautiful items related to history. It didn't feel like we were pressured w commercialism.
