This area of Kentucky is rich in history and this is one of those must see places to stop. I have never heard of the Battle of Richmond until we visited the town. This was one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War and visiting the battle grounds I can only imagine what it must have been like, or... More

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. It was very interesting seeing how well history was preserved in the outside yet from the outside things looked normal. The exhibits of were a... More
