  • It’s a very nice small museum. We were extremely lucky that the owner, Rae Whitley, was there and was our docent. He is incredibly knowledgeable about, the Civil War, but also, WWI, WWII, Mexican-American, any war that horses were in, he knows about it. What I thought was going to be a one-hour visit, turned into two. I highly recommend it.
  • Our guide was a Historian ; History Professor and a Veteran! Fantastic experience. Don't miss this museum. Thank you!
  • Very pleasant and informative. A young lady "Erin" kindly spent her time with me explaining the different displays and the history behind them. She really knows her stuff. Well worth the stop and time spent. Admission was only$3.00
  • Very interesting! We learned so much about the history of the cavalry. I would definitely recommend a visit. Also if you can, be sure to ask Rae (museum director) questions. He is full of a wealth of information.
  • Interesting look into US military history and use of horses.
