The Museum is well laid out and informative. The hand held devices tell you all about the displays in English. A good mix of photos, relics and video. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and this would be a good activity for a rainy day.

I loved my visit to this small museum to the north of town. There was just enough information in English and the displays are well presented. I wished there was more to it.

Loved it. The first bit (about NC soldiers overseas) is less interesting, but I really got into it once it started to focus on what happened in NC. My visit was an over an hour and a half and I could have stayed longer. Very...More
