  • This little museum is incredibly engaging. The museum is full of historically accurate dioramas - except all the individuals are cats.The three times we have been there have each been really informative and completely engaging for my 9 year old.

  • Went with my daughters 9 and 10. Agree with other commenters it's a different way to view the Civil War. So much hard work put into these dioramas. Very knowledgeable and took the time to describe things. It's on the bottom floor of a house. It's so cute. Definitely go if you're looking for something other than your typical museums. It's worth it to see these mini sculptures of art beautifully crafted and put together. They've done a fantastic job!
