  • Unfortunately we got here too late in the day to really explore all of the artifacts, which include Civil War, Revolutionary War, WWI, WWII, Presidents etc. The owners work the museum themselves...  more »

  • This is a quaint and quality private museum where you can see some great artifacts and even buy some to take home with you. The admission is free, but please leave a donation in the bucket for the nice people that run this!! Great little place!!!😁
  • Absolutely amazing collection! The WWII collection alone is worth the trip from anywhere. Eric graciously took some time to speak with me and he was so willing to share. I highly recommend making this a must see.
