A step back in time
about 2 months ago
This was the best 10.00(bought ticket online) I've spent in a very long time. We were passing through and only planned to spend an hour, and ended up spending 3. The hours is amazing, the library I cant even describe, but the grounds are so serene and peaceful. My favorite was the tribute to all the soldiers in the cemetery at the back of the property.

Outstanding time, a muse see when on the Gulf Coast. Museum was both educational and fun. 2018 Fall Muster Reenactment is something you have to experience.
