“Charming Old Courthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

This was a good surprise for me. I have been to several "civil war" museums and old homes, but this one had a little extra to offer. I found the "Teddy" bear display other small gems to be a nice little surprise. It is also diverse in displays about early Native Americans, slaves and much more. Of all the museums of this type, I have to say I believe this one to be my favorite.

“Good Stop for visitors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

It's not a large museum, but it does have many artifacts relative to the battle. Also just reviewing the building is worthwhile. Entry fee of $5 is very reasonable. Small gift shop with some vintage items for sale... price for some a little pricey compared to other reputable relic dealers.
Personnel on site very friendly.
Does not take a lot of time to tour, so suggest you fit it in.
Good stop.

“Great Exhibit and History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

It was really interesting to see the Civil War from the Confederate side. I thought it was amusing there use to be a Union/Confederate Reunion a few years after the war, but they discontinued it because the men would start hitting each other with their walking sticks! If you like to cook, pick up the Moore's Groceries cookbook. It's worth it!!

“Excellent museum”

If you have any interest in Vicksburg history or the civil war, this is a must! They even have the tie Jefferson Davis wore when he was inaugurated!
