  • Absolutely fantastic! Interactive, exciting, extremely well restored and the guided tour was simply phenomenal. I never expected to stumble upon such a gem of a museum/historic-site here, thank you very much for today's early afternoon of knowledge and fun facts and for all the answers to our questions. Time well spent! Highly recommended.
  • The volunteers Staffing the buildings were very knowledgeable and very friendly. The gentleman who described the procedures for Manning the Cannons was extremely knowledgeable almost like an encyclopedia. The Civil War reenactment was well done.
