The displays are nicely done,you can take your time and really get a good look at the artifacts. The layout and information is not haphazard and simply a collection of junk from a low point in American history. Worth the visit!

This place has some interesting artifacts from the Civil War period. They have several guns, bullets, swords, uniforms, and many other things. The lady working there was very knowledgeable and was able to answer questions, but still let us look at our own pace.

Thank you for your review. We try not to intrude on our visitors, but want to answer any question that they may have. We try to check every so often during a visit. We hope that our item cards explain the artifact.

A small museum worth a visit that will take an hour or so that is free to active military or $5 an adult. Exhibits have good explanations, a mix of uniforms, artifacts-mostly locally donated by family members, as well as some guns. Well done. Free...More

We are glad that you enjoyed our museum. As I often tell people, we are your grandmother's attic. Gen.Lee stopped at Lucy Buck's home on the return of the Army of Northern Virginia after Gettysburg. The girls entertained him by singing some songs while he...More

They definitely overcharge $5 each for this museum which is basically one room of memorabilia. I suppose they have no other way to keep up such a museum in here parts but I think a donation only fee would be more welcoming. I've paid that...More
