  • With two teens in tow. They wanted to see this place.As it caught their eyes as we drive by. It was worth it just to have them tell ME,Mom all about it. Wow are they Smart!

  • Small museum, but worth the time to stop and look. Host was fun to talk to. Enjoyed the time looking at displays.
  • The real history in the prisoners own words...Their meager possessions...The true layout of the prison. All can be seen in this museum.

  • Very impressive museum. I have never seen so many authentic Civil War pieces on display in one room, such as: well-kept uniforms, pistols, rifles, letters, flags, hats, binoculars, stirrups, surgery tools, various military tools, spent bullets, and a nice diorama of Camp Sumpter (the Andersonville prison) circa 1864. Note: the caretaker stated that a couple of the flags were not from the civil war period exactly, but made later. One unique little piece in the corner of a shelf was a human jawbone with a bullet still stuck in it that was found at Gettysburg. Mary Surratt's bonnet is there, and many other nice uniforms that were very clean and well preserved. The caretaker was an extremely nice and helpful lady. It cost $5 per adult, and out young daughter was free. I would definitely recommend this museum to everyone.
  • A fitting tribute
