I can't emphasize on words how fantastic this place was!!!! I went there and I was taught so much and I didn't even know I was being taught because they make it so much fun. They have outstanding employees, artifacts, and re-enactments! The artifacts are all authentic and all have a very real history. The civil war pictures and artifacts are so powerful. It is barely anything to get in. They tell you Marion's history and how they actually played a somewhat significant role in the war! I would go back everyday if I could! I suggest you don't even finish reading this review and just go there now!!!!!!!!!
