The center has photos and artifacts, as well as some terrific videos, maps, and interactive exhibits explaining the Battle of Richmond and Kentucky's role in the Civil War. The docent was also very well informed and delightful... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way to Chattanooga. My husband is a huge history buff. We both really enjoyed this museum. There are interesting exhibits and the staff was excellent! A retired history teacher gave us lots of great information about the are. Highly recommend!

Very interesting and a lot of history. They have a short video to watch and then you tour the house and battlefield. Phil the curator was very nice and helpful. He was very knowledgeable and could answer any question you asked.

The Visitor Center has interesting and informative exhibits, videos and a digital battlefield map. Helpful staff. Even when closed there is information panels outside. The battlefield park is a mile or so down Hwy 421. There are more info panels, a restored slave house and the Pleasant View house. They have a battlefield reenactment the last weekend in August.

This is a beautiful and well-preserved historic site with good, not great, interpretation. Most of what you see is on a well-marked walking trail. I visited before the visitor's center actually opened, so I can't comment on it. The park itself is definitely worth seeing. Expect a little hiking.

The visitor center is a wonderful place to visit. It has modern interactive technology that takes you back to the battle. Dr. Paul and Phillip are very knowledgeable about the battle and time period. Definitely worth a stop.
