A very pleasant fun surprise was the revolutionary war reenactment with a charming soldier guide. Involved our whole family, carrying flags and muskets. This is a scheduled event so look for it.

The museum itself isn’t that much, but the young man who leads the revolutionary war reenactment is absolutely fantastic! I can’t recommend it highly enough.

The museum is part of a complex with other tourist attractions. Not expensive to enter, and not big but with quite a lot of interesting items. The bench that Forrest Gump sat on is one of the exhibits.
