Stumbled upon this when we left the WW2 museum. As my family had fought on the Confederate side during the Civil War, I had to stop in and look around. The museum focuses on the individual stories of soldiers and family members. No big battles...More

A decent museum with some cool artifacts. It is all self guided and only one employee working there. The cost is $10 which is kind of high when compared to other options that have more items and staff to answer questions. Not a bad visit...More

This museum is small (one room, and then a side hallway off of that) with not a lot of organization. Each display is just a random bit of artifacts from important Confederate generals or soldiers. There's no chronology to the museum. It's right across the...More

I really enjoyed this museum. It’s small but has a lot amazing artifacts to check out. A must for Civil War history buffs. Make sure to watch the short film before your tour.

Everything was exceptional! All the artifacts told about the individual it represented. Video was very good! My 16 yr old enjoyed it and that these items were real not copies.

Excellent. 100 percent history. I was very pleased with this place. I am a serious history guy and I saw and learned stuff I never knew. Do it.

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
