With a few hours to kill after a 2nd day at the United States WWII museum, I walked across the street to Memorial Hall to check out the Civil War collection housed there. Hailing from the Northeast, I've been to Gettysburg a hundred times so...More

Love the building and the contents--not large but contains the "right" amount of artifacts. It's easy to visit and the overall experience is enriching!

This museum was a great place to visit on a rainy day. If you have any interest in going I would visit as quickly as possible. We were there shortly after the Lee's confederate memorial was removed from its perch.

When you first walk in the Memorial Hall you can't help but think you can see it all in a few minutes but you can't. Allow 2 hours to really take your time with it. Read the story boards and explanations of the museum pieces...More

I really enjoyed visiting this gem. Tucked away, almost unnoticed next to the World War II Museum across the street, it's in a historic building built for Confederate veterans. Lots of great artifacts, such as Jefferson Davis's portmanteau and such. Very educational.

Very old museum begun to preserve artifacts and relics from the war. Almost no reference to African slaves who fought in the war, but given this museum was opened 25 years after the war, we really didn't expect any. It would be nice to have...More

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
