  • Frederick is close to Gettysburg, a fact which meant that all the local buildings became sites for treating the wounded from the battle. Significant medical advances for treating trauma were made duri...  read more »
  • Took me about 1 hour or so to go through this museum which highlights medical practices during the Civil War. The life size dioramas are excellent . Cost is reasonable for a private museum. Lots of ar...  read more »
  • As a medical professional, this was a must. Take the time to step back and compare what we do now and what it was like then. How much has changed and yet, how much is still the same. The staff was gre...  read more »
  • How do they put so much history in such a small size museum? Just amazing. I've got to stop being disappointed by the endless ways man has invented to kill each other. This history is so important.
  • Was a great museum, interesting facts, pictures, and a spectacular tour guide for the beginning. One of the best museum's I've been to this summer. Would recommend.
  • A good museum as museums go. It cost a bit more than expected given the size, and the exhibits seemed a little dusty and dated. However, my wife and I live in DC and have access to world-class free museums whenever we want. So we are spoiled. We did like the focus it had on dispelling the myths of Civil War surgery, and the actual appendages on loan from a university really made the theory pop into real life.
  • Wonderful! I learned a lot!!
  • I tried to enter at 4:40pm and was not allowed to enter because we would only have 20 minutes to look around. We were denied entry and were told we had to be there by 4 if we wanted to go in. We even asked if we could still pay and still leave in 20 minutes when they close and she still refused. If you show up any time after 4pm you will NOT be allowed to enter. Unfortunately we are from Texas and this was our last night in Frederick county.
