Lots of pics and info packed into a few rooms of an old home. Located in a residential area which is a bit odd and it appears as if people also live there. Looks like the roof is leaking and some repairs are needed before...More

Lots of neat stuff to see from the civil war era. If you are a history buff, interested in civil war memorabilia, you should stop in here. Well worth the $2 admission.

A beautiful historic home and museum. It closes at 5pm, but it's packed with lots of stuff! Tons of memorabilia on the civil war and confederate military. Definitely worth the trip if you're into the civil war.

The thing I loved most about this museum is the amount of pictures they have of the soldiers from that area that fought in the Civil War. They also have a lot of civil war artifacts. Definitely worth a visit.

A lot of local artifacts have been donated from the surrounding area. The place needs to be freshened up. It could use a good dusting, but it is interesting. Nice, local museum.

I visited the War Between the States museum while spending a day in Florence. The museum is located in a two-story house in a residential area which makes it an odd place for it to be located. There is a gravel lot adjacent to the...More

The exhibits were carefully gathered. The building in which they are housed and the location leave much to be desired. I learned quite a bit and am glad we went but do not feel a need to go back. We spent about an hour at...More
