I've taken Civil War relics to schools to show kids and other than feeding them hardtack that was the highlight of the show for them holding the bullets, money, etc. from the period.  They are surprised by the heft of the bullets, which allows you to discuss medical aspects of the war, how rifling affected the fighting versus past wars, etc.  Those things even unimpressed kids seeem to pay attention to.
