Really had no idea what to expect with a brochure write up talking about thousands of artifacts. Well they weren't all on display, but what was took us a good couple hours to view. Totally uncrowded (I think we were the only ones in the museum that morning)...its off the beaten path on an old military base and probably only... 更多
We stopped in for a tour, but unbeknownst to us, we needed to reserve a tour. There was no other tourists there and the young woman greeted us right away and offered some facts about the Museum; however, couldn't provide a tour without a reservation.

Collections include oddities (human hair wreath!), a rare gun from one of "Aiken's boys" (on loan), and a piece of Benedict Arnold's ship pulled... 更多
