Unfortunately, the Citadel Mall where this museum was located has basically evicted the museum to make room for a "large retailer" in the mall. The museum website states they will be relocating, but do not know where yet.

An excellent assortment of uniforms from throughout America's history, well presented, plus related items. We don't recall seeing a better array anywhere, and the admission price is attractive: free, although they appreciate donations.
