If you love old guns you will love this museum. It's 5.00 per person to walk thru. And it's not very big but has tons of guns to look at.

This is a personal collection turned into a museum. Great examples of rifles, swords and artillery shells. If you're a Civil War enthusiast and have an extra 15 minutes I would recommend stopping by. It's $5 to get in, but the relic store is free....More
