Nice museum- not for young kids, interesting topic. Really liked how you follow one privates diary throughout and get to learn about his life after the war.
Short on actual medicine artifacts

This is a well done museum. Displays are pretty good, but I was disappointed that there were few actual medical/surgical/nursing artifacts. Seemed to be geared to school kids, which is great, if you are entertaining and teaching this age group. good parking facilities nearby.
A must visit

This is a very educational museum on Civil War medicine. Take time to thoroughly visit each exhibits.
Sobering and inspiring

Some interesting counter facts as to why there was so much amputation during the civil war, also shows how the war developed triage, field ambulances, nursing with very limited medicines. Well worth 2 hours, plus note that if you go on the tourist information web site before the visit there is a useful 2 for 1 offer saving $10. Not really suitable for sensitive or young.
Interesting Look at Civil War Field Medicine

Worth spending over two hours to gain an appreciation for field medicine as it was practiced in the 1860s.
