This museum is about 25 miles from I65 but so worth the trip. Museum is extremely well done - better than some national park museums we've seen. Grounds are peaceful. So glad we found our way here.

When though this site could use some upkeep and updating, it still has a great deal of history that shouldn't be forgot about.
