My wife and I came for the 150th anniversary of the civil war events. We enjoyed the small museum, due to unique and rare artifacts, a real treat for civil war buffs. No pictures were allowed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The gift shop was more than just your average trinkets; local artists' pottery and paintings on dogwood... More

Not much to see , but for a museum surrounded by fields, is not bad. Very nice History. No cameras allow inside. A small shop gift shop. There's a cabin, letrine as well wood for fireplace outside in the field. Free admission , donations welcome.

We were here during the 150th anniversary of the battle of Averasboro and got to walk the battlefield and check out the Confederate cemetery. Interesting site for any one that has an inclination to learn about our national heritage.

Well worth the round about trip we took to find. The museum was a gem and the gentlemen in the museum were very helpful. The land scape, farm land, showed how difficult the area was to control. Interesting and recommended to Civil War interested visitors.

This is for real Civil War buffs. An out of the way battlefield a few miles east of I-95 near Dunn, NC which has little to see. There is a free museum about this next to last Civil War battle that took place in the state. There are some interesting artifacts, pictures, maps and new paper articles about the battle.... More

There wasn't much to see in the museum and the battlefield was just a field. The slave cabin had no window so you couldn't even see inside and it was locked so you couldn't go in. Not worth the visit.

This tiny private museum has a lot of cool stuff but the people who run the place are simply awful. Their "President of the Board" a man named C.C. Livingston was a total (word that tripadvisor won't let me post). He was condescending, cold, and just plain rude! I am surprised that the museum is even still open.

A very small museum but well put together. The staff was more then willing to give individual attention and explain each artifact and it's history. While we were there thay had a group with horse-drawn cannons complete with caissons. The infantry advanced and were fired on with these original relics. There are many old houses on the road that appear... More

This is a privately run museum with a great collection of artifacts from the battle which took place at this location. Admission is free, although donations are gratefully accepted. Much of the battlefield remains farmland much as it was during the battle. Nice facilities for events.

The battlefield is not much to look at as it stands today, but can be highly appreciated for the role it played many years ago. It is nice to see that it is being taken care of for future generations to visit.
