The National Civil War Museum

ADD TO MY TRIP

I ended up here randomly with my family and was pleasantly surprised. I am not one for history museums but this one managed to keep me entertained. I went home humbled by how little I really knew about the Civil War. For $8 you take your own, self-guided tour through a maze of weapons, information, artifacts, and maps. My friend mentioned that they did a nice and unbiased job at explaining the experience of both the North and the South. You can see the whole museum in one afternoon.
