Highly informative. It had many unique pieces. You were able to have 4 different museums for one price. I throughly enjoyed the women's museum. It was the first that I have been to that dedicated that much time and research to the woman of the civil war.

This Civil War museum focuses on the war in what was then the west -- Kentucky and Tennessee. Very informative with lots of insight into the key players of the western campaigns, both North and South.

I love history and studying the Civil War so that adds to my experience. Did have my 2 kids (12 and 5) with us and they enjoyed it too. Great collections and stories. Kids enjoyed the pioneer village. Great collection of items at the War museum as well. Enjoyed reading "real life Mulan" stories at the Women in War Museum.... More

$10 civil war tour was ok. Seeing the old village was neat but it was just a bunch of buildings standing there looking like they did many years ago. Museums were ok. Women of the Civil War was interesting. Different to see women's role in the Civil War.

Very good collection of civil war exhibits. Good artwork. Pioneer village was ok, just some empty cabins on Sunday morning. Wish we had the time to go to the modern warfare exhibit that was part of the package.

I have been to many Civil War museums in my life and this is by far one of the best! Everything is so well organized and so well put together! My two favorites were the War museum and the Civil war museum of the western theater. I could have skipped the village only because I've seen so many like it... More

If I am close to anything civil war I see it. This is a well gone museum. Many artifacts from the war. Pictures, weapons, uniforms, maps, explanations of what happened at many battles. Much history of the leaders, on both sides. Well worth the price. A very detailed presentation of the war between the states.

This was the second time we have toured this museum. Very interesting and well done. Worth stopping in and seeing. Also enjoyed the Women of the Civil War Museum and All War Museum which are just up the road.

Being a history buff, the structural lay out of this particular museum was a bit off putting at first, but the variety of historical artifacts and details attributed to them are well worth the tour. Even if you aren't capable of checking out the other museums, that are tied into the property or not capable of catching the reenactors in... More
