“Eclectic collection of civil war and everything else”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Our innkeeper arrange for us to visit the museum on a Monday afternoon. The museum is privately owned by Doug Bast and normally open on Sunday afternoons or by private arrangement. Mr. Bast (pronounced bost as in Boston) will spend hours with you explaining his collections.

“Super awesome”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Great little museum, Mr. Bast, the owner is really nice and knowledgeable. The collection is crazy cool, who woulda thunk there were Egyptian antiquties and a piece of the White House in Boonsboro!
