Located on the Chattahoochee river that separates GA from AL. This is a great place to go when the weather is hot or rainy. So much history and we love exploring anything related to the civil war. The admission helps keep this treasure operating.

This museum has a lot of history for such a small place. My husband & I enjoyed visiting this museum. The age of some of the exhibits is amazing and the work that has been done to restore the artifacts is wonderful.

This turned out to be an excellent choice for a hot day in Columbus. Our group of three was there just as they opened, so for a while, we had the museum all to ourselves. A lot of original artifacts and documentation to go through,...More

Very impressed with this museum. Excellent exhibits, especially the USS Hartford and the display of flags. The replica of the inside of the USS Hartford was very extremely interesting.

When I was small I used to go to a museum in Columbus ga. I'm not sure which one but I rrmember an old wooden ship that eas inside. It seems like it was near where the fair was held in the seventys. Anyway near there was the ruins of a large stone building that we played in. Seems like it resembled leftovers of a coliseum like structure. I've always wondered what it was and I can't find anything on the internet.
