  • Yes, you will have to pay an admission fee for this one, as it is a private collection, but it is worth every penny.
  • Received a gift of membership and was absolutely delighted to find a well-planned exhibit and amazingly knowledgeable and friendly docents. Well worth the trip from Baltimore.
  • 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.
