“Don't miss this Excellent Museum while in Florence”

War Between the States Museum
Ranked #9 of 27 things to do in Florence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 August 2014

This is a must see stop when you are in Florence, SC. I have been going to the WBTS Museum since 1998. You will find artifacts on display that you will find in no other museum. The research library is top notch. The museum director will help you in your research. If you think you had an ancestor that served in the War between the States the resources are available to find that soldier. Be sure to look at the hundreds of soldier photographs throughout the facility. The gift shop has items for sale for people of all ages. Children will enjoy what the museum has to offer. The admission cost is low as compared to other museums. When you visit, plan on staying awhile. You'll be glad you did.

Very good in its collection of weapons, naval information(CSS pee dee) table model of the Florence stockade. This is where you get information of stockade. Displays of cannon projectiles. Uniforms, etc. have books which can give information on units located in area during civil war. Not a cheesy museum. Has items for sale from model cannons to flags.
