Unimposing from the outside, this 2 story museum is beautifully organized, with an excellent diversity of exhibits, following the Civil War medical developments by time and subject matter. They've managed to create displays that engage both children (shorter plaques, hands-on exhibits, guess the answer panels, a scavenger hunt), and adults (longer information, lots of letter excerpts, some pretty unusual and grim photos). The museum is located right in downtown Frederick, with an inexpensive parking garage right behind it, and multiple tea shops, restaurants, vintage/thrift shops, specialty chocolate/toy/comic/gift shops surrounding it. We meant to spend 1 hour in the museum, and instead spent almost 3 hrs without realizing it!!! My kids never even complained! It's that good, lol!
