  • Should be the National abolitionist museum or the history of slavery museum. If you are true Civil War buff, this is not the place for you. More focus on causes (from their view) than the actual war. You can pick up the political correctnesstone they have. I would not recommend and will not be back. Museums jobs are not to take away history or even interpret history. It’s purpose is to be a custodian and guardian of ALL history. I wouldn’t waste my money.
  • A really interesting museum. Displays many points and facts about how the civil war affected the USA. As I tourist I enjoyed this visit. I would recommend giving this a visit if you are not too conscious of the civil war history.
