This museum is well worth a visit. It is absolutely crammed with items of interest I'm not going to say much more and just let the pictures do the talking. This is a must see. Give it a try.

It took me about an hour to see everything at this museum. It cost $5 to get in. Some interesting items and exhibits. Grant's chair was interesting. The gift shop sells authentic civil war items.
