Put together well. The uniforms from the civil war were amazing. It would be more interesting if you were from the area.

We visited with our daughter and grand children. The staff is very friendly and helpful which makes this limited collection acceptable. The staff was full of interesting comments about things I was unaware of. Their is a nice film in the back that is worthwhile seeing. The price is right - free! Donations gretfully accepted.

Good exhibits. Displays are very informative and tasteful. It's just nice to know that a community with as interesting a history has such a nice place to display it.
