Owners really personalized the experience for us; it’s dedicated to the mountaineer veterans, not just at the county level. Museum is housed in the old colored school and is quite tight. Donations only fund this property. Take the time to really absorb the sacrifices our...More

There was quite a collection of military items from battles long ago to nearly present day. I was most interested in Civil War-related items, of which there were few. This museum is a wonderful tribute to the sacrifices made.

Dear Friend, THANK YOU for asking. There is NO fee to visit the Museum. The Museum's philosophy is this: "Our Veterans PAID THE PRICE for you." Therefore, we operate solely on donations and gifts.
