This museum was very small. There were no tour guides and most of the displays weren't very interesting. It could be so much more. Definitely would not recommend it - waste of money and time.

We saw this on our holidays and found it to be one of the best places to visit. It is full of history of the Civil War and the displays are done so well. The gift shop has gems there as well!

For $10 you get to visit the Civil War Museum, the Pioneer Village, the Women's Civil War Museum and the War Memorial of Mid America. The tickets are good for two consecutive days because these museums contain so much information that if you don't get there early you might need a second day to see all of the exhibits. Great...

First, this is a great museum, for civil war enthusiasts. I went in with a different expectation, expecting more local to the area exhibits as well. It was a general overview of the "Western Campaign", which is great, and covered it well. Seeing actual artifacts was interesting. Just disappointed that there was not anything featuring more local history.

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.
