We came here in search of a geocache. The women working were a pleasure to talk to and very informative. We've never been in this area before so we enjoyed the museum and the other Civil War stuff. Gift shop was nice.

From Fayetteville, you approach the Averasbory Civil War Battlefield Museum by first going through the town of Eastover, so named because it is east over the river from Fayetteville. The museum is located between the towns of Godwin and Dunn on a side loop off of Route 95 (Exit 65 at Godwin and Exit 71 at Dunn). The small museum... More

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

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
