The museum is housed in a former railing depot on site of Greater Confederate Naval Ordinance Works, which was second only to Tredegar Iron Works in Richmond, Virginia, in manufacture of arms and munitions. Four Confederate "rams, " including the CSS Tennessee, were built here. Civil War-era artifacts are found in abundance at this museum, as well as other artifacts dating from 7000 B.C. through the Gulf War.
