This is a very good museum, be ready to do a lot of walking. There is cabins outside that you can walk though and there is different part of the museum. It will take a couple of hours to look at everything. The cost is only $10. which includes 3 different museums.

My husband is well read on the civil war so this was a must see for our family. If you really wanted to you could easily spend several hours here taking it all in. Our boys were not quite as engaged after about 45 minutes they were ready to go but they stuck it out a little longer for us.... More

For a small town, this Museum was loaded with artifacts and memorabilia; cannon, drums and uniforms. The photos, paintings and correspndences were nearly Smithsonian-worthy.

It is the Ladies civil war museum and very limited on displays and not a lot to see. Sure not worth 10,00.

We were very impressed at the collection of Civil War items displayed in this museum. Your ticket includes all the museum areas. It is very well laid out and so many interesting things to read and see. I would not miss this when in Bardstown.

Lots of interesting Civil war items but a little difficult to navigate through because of the multiple doorways leading off to different areas of the museum.

This place had it all! Total coverage of the North and South War with original artifacts that were so amazing to see in person. A must place to visit if in this area for sure. Go here first, then you can visit the other War Museum's above this one for free. Awesome!

Amazing assemblage of Civil War artifacts and memorabilia. Guns, cannons, swords , uniforms , flags, and more fill every corner of this truly fantastic museum. If you are an American history buff this is a must see during your visit to Bardstown

Balanced telling of the war, with a very impressive number of personal effects, and perhaps more saddlery items than I've seen anywhere else. Extensive collection of authentic uniforms. Covers the war not only on land but on the sea and rivers also. A great section on the musical bands from both sides that accompanied the soldiers into battle, with many,... More

Overall this is a well done local Civil Museum but they all but forgot that Kentucky was not a Union State as 90% of the displays are Union based. Kentucky was the home of many Confederate supporters and they are mostly skipped over in this facility.
