If you are a fan of steam power, naval technology and American civil war, then there?s a place in Columbus, Georgia that combines these three: National Civil War Naval Museum at Port Columbus.
The museum is steampunk?s haven on a grand scale. The museum holds the gigantic artifacts that chronicle the history of early American naval warfare ? the ironclads. Discover the interior of Admiral Farragut?s flagship, the USS Hartford. Enter this replica ironclad and relive the experience being holed up in this metal giant during the war. Witness the remake of the epic battle between the Monitor and the Merrimack at the ?Battle Theater?. Behold the 225-foot long hull of the largest civil war ironclad, the recently salvaged CSS Jackson. You can also check the museum?s thousand Civil War-related books, documents, photographs and paintings.
