  • For a small fee we got to see the history museum. Small place, but well put together. Many great bits of history. The best part was the revolutionary war reenactment of the Battle of Savannah. The young man was so enthusiastic, you can tell how much he cares for the city’s history. He gave a small talk before taking us to the battlefield and explained many aspects of the battle. On our way back there was also a Girl Scouts exhibition. We had a wonderful afternoon.
  • The museum is nice, but not impressive. What WAS impressive was the young man who led the revolutionary war reenactment of the Battle of Savannah. WOW! He was so enthusiastic! I highly recommend a visit just to participate in his presentation. What a great way to learn about history!
  • Great place, very interesting. Good for kids and adults alike. Cheap entrance charge. Very good service. Nice gift shop.
  • Very cool place. If you're lucky enough to be there when they have the tours of the "Railroad Presidents Cars" it is well worth the time. The employee doing the tour when we were there was VERY knowledgeable. She spoke about the train cars as if they were her own children. Extremely nice woman.
  • best $50. I ever spent. this 70 yr old and a 3 year old and other family members really enjoyed the tour of the yard on a stem locomotive
