My husband and I toured around this old house and were able to learn a lot about the Confederate soldiers. We saw several different weapons they used, the different clothing they wore, and how they were able to survive during various weather!! This is a very small space, but well worth the stop!

Very nice place located in downtown Greenville. As a local to the area, I decided to stop by here a while back and take a look. Lots of items that you don't see on the cable tv specials, and very knowledgeable staff. This is a "must stop" if you are in the area.

Quite amazing for something that is free and is staffed by volunteers. Amazing collection of historical firearms, documents and interesting items. The big hit with our visit was the confederate soldier who was over 7 feet tall.

A small museum packed with many Civil War artifacts not seen in larger venues. Their hand gun and rifle collection is extensive and has many unique pieces. My favorite piece is a Henry Derringer pistol like the one Booth used to kill President Lincoln. Amazing how small it is. My wife enjoyed the museum as well and she is not... More

Very interesting stuff to look at and ready all about. If someone hadn't drug me out for lunch I might still be there reading everything. Need a second visit. Such interesting things about the area.

An interesting little museum with very knowledgable employees. We spent about 1.5 hours here looking at the exhibits and asking the employees questions about the confederate armies role in the civil war. I don't know much American history, so this was a very interesting place for me to visit. The exhibits are well maintained and varied.

Incredible amount of artifacts. Knowledgeable volunteer staff. Easy to find. Not much parking. If you are in the area, a must visit. Spent over 90 minutes in the museum.

While in Greenville recently, we found this in a magazine at the hotel and decided to check it out since our 6 year old son is obsessed with wars and "soldiers". This museum is located in a house and it didn't look like much from the outside, but once we got inside, I was surprised at the amount of stuff... More
