Liked everything, nothing not to like. Loads of history on the people that fought in the War of the States. The gift shop could use some help, but if it's information on the battle that you are looking for; very knowledgable people working there!

We visited both the Richmond Battlefield and the Visitors Center. The battlefield has a walking trail with markers describing the battle. The trail is a moderate trail with some ups and downs, runs 6/10 of a mile. The markers are very informative, but some are difficult to read due to exposure to the elements. The Visitors Center is very well... More

The exhibits are very well done and items are labeled with notes about whether or not they are from the battle, from the time period or are reproductions. There is a huge variety of... More

Kentucky's role in the civil war is usually omitted or understated. But here you can walk the ground & see buildings where the battle was fought & the wounded cared for. The laser diaorama is the best I have seen. I can't do this place justice in a review so I will just say you need to go if you... More

We are still new to Richmond and went to the visitor's center over the holidays with guests from PA. What a wonderful surprise! 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!

Many displays, including real personal items from soldiers, officers and families. All kinds of information about the whole US Civil War with lots of free pamphlets to take and... More

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.
