Yes, this is an older, creepier version of many wax museums, but very informative. I think this iwould be great for a child's first time look at the Civil War, although some kids as well as many adults (see other reviews) may find the tour boring. If you expect Disney-like animatronics, go to Disney World but expect to pay big bucks. Here for about $6.50, you get a leisurely self-guided tour of the Civil War. The grand finale was a battlefield of wax figures that were periodically lit up during an audio reenactment of the civil war and narrated by an Abe Lincoln lookalike. Hey, I liked it! Don't care if the wax figures were ragged (looks similar to those in some of the witch museums in Salem, MA). I learned a lot about the Civil War just by reading each display. And yes, I did get a bit teary-eyed during the battlefield finale. Afterwards, we bought quite a number of souvenirs from the extensive gift shop. As an afterthought, wonder which came first...the giftshop or the museum which is tucked away in a hall in back of the cash register. Just curious.
