Museum of Southern History

The Museum of Southern History will be closed November 22-25 for the Thanksgiving Holidays.

The Museum of Southern History chronicles the history of the South during the mid-1800s.  Visitors peruse room settings, cases, and dioramas to view clothing, fine furnishings, uniforms, tools, and weapons that help convey a sense of those who settled in the region and how they rebuilt their lives after the Civil War.
