  • If you are into model trains, this is the place to visit. In addition there was a civil war movie and a replica of a battlefield that was detailed and a must see.  more »
  • This museum is on a five dollar entry fee and you can see some incredible models. The Vicksburg battle is worth the money. But set your expectations low.  more »

  • Very friendly staff! Knowledgeable as well!! They've got some cool little set ups to check out. It's about five bucks to see the museum. Free for military. The gift shop has some great gifts that are way cheaper than some of the same gifts at the national park. So if you're going to do some gift shopping, this is a good place to get some cool stuff.
  • I truly enjoyed my time here. For such a small museum I thought it was very interesting and well worth my time to visit. I didn't care for some of the comments given by the older lady who works there, but it really is a neat and interesting place to visit.
