The staff makes the place great. They show you what's important. Help when needed. Very friendly and talkative. The exhibits are dated but interesting and relevant. The exhibits are slanted towards the confederacy and the museum has a lot on Jefferson Davis-but as expected since the siege was had such an impact on the area. So don't go there if... 更多
Even the building is special as it survived the Civil War; upstairs you can even walk round the old court room itself.

There is a nominal charge to enter the museum, but it is well worth... 更多
