  • We went to the Museum during their Victorian Christmas Celebration. I was completely blown away with the amount of artifacts and information! Great place for kids too!!! 
  • This is a very compact museum that is easy to see in a relatively short amount of time. The CSS Jackson was a Confederate gunboat (the hull is here along with propellers) and I can't imagine there are...  more »
  • This is an amazing museum tucked away in a quiet area of Columbus. It tells the story of the gunboats that moved up and down the rivers during the American Civil War. The exhibits are excellent and th...  more »

  • Self guided tour, with a phone number posted at certain intervals with a number to dial that gives an explanation to the exhibit. I really enjoyed this museum.
  • Very cool displays. Gives you real perspective of how things were. The hull of the ironclad was too cool.
  • Clean and amazing detail. Everyone should tour at least once. I do miss the realistic shooting gallery
  • Historical exhibits relating to the river can be found at this museum. Also take a look at the "Water Witch" located just outside; it is a "full-scale ship replica".
  • Excellent, well maintained exhibits. We had a large group of 12 and arranged to fire the cannon outside, which was a great experience. There are some minor inaccuracies of the dates and events on some of the displays, but it only marginally takes away from the experience and unless you are a careful Civil War student, you might not even notice the mistakes. Plenty of space for public gatherings (e.g. military retirement or promotions, etc.).
