Because of rain, our plans were impossible so we chose to visit the museum. I'm REALLY glad we did. The museum is small but packed full of information about the Battle of Richmond and the Civil War. It's a sad part of our history, but it is part of our history. The curator was very knowledgeable and fun to talk... More

We enjoyed what films and displays the visitors center had. We learned of the battle of Richmond and it's battlegrounds. We continued on and visited the Zion church where the union and confederate doctors worked together aiding the wounded. It was a very impressive trip through history. We continued on by taking the driving tour towards Richmond. Anyone who is... More

This visitor center was a home for those who fought in the civil war. The interior design brings history to life. Our tour guide demonstrated on the value behind this site through the use of videos and different visual props.

It is undoubtedly rich in history of the Battle of Richmond, and more. The tour guide was really friendly and funny. This is a great place for history lovers. However, the directions to the place were very unclear (I was using a GPS), and this place can be easily missed because of this reason.

The day after memorial day, some of my colleagues and decided to visit the battle of Richmond visitor center, here we were guided through the journey of some of the fallen historians and there stories.

This museum is quite impressive which you cannot tell from the outside. The structure of the building is well restored and the exhibitions depict the life of soldiers during the Battle of Richmond. This place has a laser guided topographical map that gives a bird's-eye view of the battlefield and showing troops' movements, which is a must see.

As I walked on the lovely scenery surrounding an old-fashioned looking house I was transported back in time. Starting my journey to the site was a little rough. I had some trouble due to lack of directions from the road and my GPS. However, when I got there I was impressed by the site. Once I stepped through the old... More

My team and I visited the Battle of Richmond Visitor's Center, and I was particularly impressed with the preservation of history here. There are lots of historical artifacts to see, and the oral narratives make the experience even better.

For such a small building, the experience was very rich. Every inch was decorated in civil war relics and memorabilia, dresses, pictures, even a surgeons kit. The second floor had pamphlets on different civil war characters. The coolest thing though was a video and projector presentation on the Battle of Richmond. As a video spoke, a projector depicted troop movements... More
