    It is small which I have visited, the cost of entry is almost commercial museums. But have things to see, and forget about the cost unless you've been in family. because there if it hurts, not everyone enjoys the small things, moves well is a set of spaces worth seeing, because they represent the history of this beautiful city

    The Battle of Savannah reenactment tour is amazing! The museum is part of a pick 3 pass that includes the Georgia State Railroad museum, the childrens museum, and Old Fort Jackson. This is a great value for severally days worth of entertainment and "hands-on" history. I would recommend for everyone to take this tour and experience some important milestones in U.S. history.

    Excellent little museum. Make sure to take the kids Thursday thru Saturday to take part in the reenactment of the Revolutionary War Battle Of Savannah. It's a great opportunity for hands-on learning.

    Decent,I would like to see more on the pop culture that has came from the area,More movie related history etc.While it's cool to see the actual bench from Forrest Gump,If the museum would offer a replica of the bench that is functional and could be sat on that would also be fantastic.

    A lot to be learned. Very friendly staff and great exhibit at fairly low cost. There is even a free part in the hall, and an free informative movie about Savannahs history.
