Young children are likely to get bored at this museum. Everything is inside glass displays with TONS of reading. Picture after picture of Civil War era.

This is a collection that has been accumulated by one man! And it is incredible. Well worth the price of admission. Allocate at least an hour or more to see this museum and to walk the battlefield. Museum is in the middle of the battlefield.

This museum is a surprise. It is a private collection of mostly Civil War artifacts but includes Indian, WWI, WW2, and other areas of interest. For me the most amazing item was the 'dirty brown home manufactured' Confederate uniform of Private Theophilus Frank of Company...More

Not sure if this place is still open. I attempted to visit mid-day on a Tuesday in early April and the museum appeared to be "closed down". The gate was closed, no flags flying on the poles, no operating hours posted.......looked deserted. The radio information...More

There are 3 motels in the area, I'm sure one of them has a late checkout. New market battlefield museum though is under renovations. It may not be open.
