This is a nice little museum with a few hidden gems inside. A great way to brush up on a little southern history for most folks, and even this history teacher learned a few things!

Had some free time so decided to visit this museum. It was very interesting. The exhibits are very informative. I had a basic knowledge of the history from a UK perspective but this museum helped make sense of everything. I learnt a lot.
