  • This museum is very unique and definitely worth the $5 to get in. Although it is a small place, it is packed full of amazing historical items. The gentleman that owns the shop can tell you the history of most all of the things in the museum, and from what I learned most all of it is his personal collection, or gifts from veterans. He talked to us for quite a while and told us many amazing stories about different artifacts he had. As a history nerd and teacher I high recommend a visit when in the area.
  • We took a detour here as part of a larger trip. Apparently the place is closed but the web does not reflect that. As a history geek I was really looking forward to this. Such a waste of time and gas.
  • I can confirm the couple of other recent reviews that state this place is closed. According to the shopkeeper next door, they closed at the beginning of the pandemic and haven't reopened. This is as of July 2022.
  • I've gone to militaria & war museum's up and down the east coast but never visited the edged weapon museum until summer of 2019. I still think about it often, what a incredible little museum. the older couple working the front (which I assume were the owners) were kind and knowledgeable, willing to answer all questions. the broad scope of the collection was remarkable covering almost all United states engagements up until modern era, my personal favorite section was the early OSS stuff and the WWII divers knife display. a lot of rare pieces under display and the museum is very easy to follow. I hope to pay this place another visit as soon as possible.
  • Entry is only $5 and I was shocked to know that this was once a private collection in the owner's home. Both Mr and Mrs Thomas were knowledgeable and answered all questions. I also discovered that he was originally from NC much like myself. Whether your into knives, swords, or just war artifacts this is a must see! Definitely worth the price, time, and trip. We could've spent hours just talking with the owners!
