We have one of the largest privately owned collections of the Civil war era, used for educational purposes in Western NY

We have a wide variety of weapons, uniforms & equipment

  • Many items in our collection are used in our presentations
  • Many of our displayed items are very unique covering all the major military services and many of the supporting services

Many items within the exhibit are able to be touched: Uniforms, equipment or displayed items not under glass – to touch history!

  • At no time, are the weapons such as: swords, firearms, knives or bayonets to be handled or held in anyway by students under the age of 18 yrs – this is a safety precaution
  • We do have non-firing firearms available for students to handle if permission is given.We often use wooden cutouts of rifles to help demonstrate soldiering with the students
