Old Capital Museum executive director Amy Wright says, "People come in and spend most of their day right here in the museum. There's so much to see and it's cool inside."
There are ten galleries to choose from in the museum, starting with the Native Americans and traveling through time to the founding of Milledgeville.
Walking through the exhibits, you will see clothes and weapons used during the Civil War.
Rounding the corner, visitors can see a doctor's kit used for surgery and old medicine bottles used at the local asylum.
At the center of the rotating exhibit is the King Cotton display. Wright says it's "Everything you need to know about cotton."
Younger visitors can go on a chipmunk tour where they can search through "a sandbox that is filled with all kinds of artifacts. Boys and girls can dig through the sandbox and find shards of pottery and arrowheads and identify those," says Wright.
On the third floor are the chairs where the Georgia House of Representatives and Senate met in the 1800's.
The Museum is open Tuesday-Friday 10am-3:30 and Saturday 12pm-4pm.
Admission is: $5.50 for adults, $4.50 for seniors and children 6 and above and students with an ID will pay $2.25.
On July 15th, the museum will host their 5th annual artifact identification day. You can bring an old rock from your backyard and an archaeologist will tell you how old it is.
