I wholeheartedly agree with Heather B’s assessment “Has so much potential not being realized”. My wife and I thought it wasn’t currently worth the money ($6) but it COULD be a fantastic museum with a little more work. The museum is a lot larger than it looks outside and has TONS of great relics and era pieces but there needs to be more signage. There are plenty of signs telling the Civil War history (Generals, battles, troop movement, etc) but they rarely explain what is being displayed in each display cabinet. Many of the displays are stuffed full of uniforms, handcuffs, pipes, knifes, guns, and other miscellaneous trinkets that are never explained. What is that trinket and was it found on a battlefield? Where? What type of soldier wore a particular uniform and why? Is it a reproduction or a real uniform? Did someone important wear it? What’s the deal with the full taxidermy horse? There is one cabinet with a colorful uniform/vest with a Shriner-looking hat and NO explanation. WTH?
I was surprised by the amount of artifacts. All of the cabinets are professionally laid out but are useless without explanations.
