  • This is a museum that is staffed by knowledgeable volunteers of the American Civil War. The museum is a mishmash of donations from the period. There is a library full of books on the subject.  more »

  • We went at 11:00 am on a Saturday but they weren't open. I guess we should call ahead because it is staffed by volunteers? IDK.  more »

  • Learn Southern history that is not taught in schools. Heritage. Great tour great price. I leaned new things. Enjoyed Mrs. Gaillard's thought and insight on the Monroe Tariff. Nice preservation and presentation!
  • Most amazing collection of artifacts and displays related to the civil war. Great onsite library for research. Knowledgeable volunteer guides standing ready to answer any questions. A must see and visit for the serious history buff. A hidden gem.
  • Great lecture and tour. I am in the Masters Program and was impressed with the extent of the knowledge of the tour guide. I did not see any bias or prejudice displayed. Great library for research. Fee is only a 3$ donation so you cannot beat the price.
  • I care. Cool place, cheap entry. Good spot on a rainy afternoon. Learning is a lost art.
  • Great place to visit. It is good to go to a place with down home nice Southern people that are always helpful.
