I was really pleasantly pleased with how many artifacts they had - and they had tons! All the different uniforms and information about the units, it was very interesting and worth the stop.

Lots of things to see... $20/adult for "4 museums"... With the exception of the village, most of what you see is in glass cases... That being said, there's some pretty neat stuff in those cases! Civil war buffs will enjoy this...

We return to this museum every time we travel to Louisville. My two favorite places are the Frazier Museum and this Museum. This was my third visit to this Museum and I will return in the fall.

Lots of info but most cases had a uniform coat, a sword, a gun and some mementos. Was very hard for my 5 and 8 year old to enjoy it. Some displays were peeling and it would have been nice to have an audio tour...More
