The building itself is incredible, the history inside was awesome. We all learned so much about the civil war and the South. Be sure to take your time and go through each room. The staff was very kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. Definitely a must do

I'm more of a tour guide kind of fan but the history learned touring this museum was amazing. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.
