Thoroughly enjoyed the small museum, great unique artifacts from local sunken ships and the battle. Helped to have some familiarity with the civil war for the exhibits. The museum is in a old train station. Don't miss stopping by the ironclad model outside!

Minimal entrance fee, really well done exhibits, suggest watching the "longer than 4 minutes" 4 minute video first...will help set the stage for the rest of the museum. Nice exhibits of ordnance, photographs, flag, etc. 3/8th scale ship is pretty cool too, but you cannot go on board that....display from a far only.

This is a great, although small, museum. Lots of artifacts relating to the civil war history of the area and great people! Definitely worth the trip!

This museum ir relatively small in comparison to it's contents. This place holds a treasure trove of artifacts and historical data from the Civil War and The Battle of Plymouth. During my visit here The Battle of Plymouth was being re-enacted by both Rebel and Union troops camped out all over the grounds near and around the Museum which occurred... More

We found this when passing by town and seeing the design for the ironclad replica. The replica was amazing and made describing it easy to the family. The museum is small but has excellent displays. It is possible one of the most complete civil war artillery shell collections I have ever seen. It also contained items I have never seen... More

A few of us went to burn some time while waiting for a wedding event. Not very big, but very interesting. A great way to spend an hour or two. Staff was very friendly.

I made a quick stop at the small museum located in Plymouth, NC enroute to the Outer Banks. I had seen it before when they were having the 150th Anniversary celebration of the Civil War battle but it was closed and had made a mental note to visit at a later date. The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from... More

Very nice. Small but very informative. The CSS Albermale replica is built to scale. The walking trail is nice.

Great museum on Plymouth waterfront, saw the listing on town website so stopped in before heading back home. We were impressed with all the local artifacts from "war between states" and enjoyed listening to several stories from the gentleman volunteer working there that day. Really liked that everything was numbered so we knew exactly what we were looking at, lots... More
