If you love things from the Civil War, this museum is a must. The artifacts are unbelievable. There are toys, clothing furnishing. Everything you can image from the era. Don't miss if you have a chance.

Great little museum. The $5 admission was the right price. It only took me an hour to get through. I would recommend you not bring young kids.
