  • Great place to visit. Genealogy area was well organized. People that work there were very helpful.
  • Worth a stop. Museum looks small on the outside but is a bit bigger once you get in. Many informative displays on the Civil War and also some of the other local history. They also offer lots of brochures about activities in the area. I ended up doing a walking tour of Dayton based on a brochure I found and really enjoyed it. Plan on 45 minutes.
