We visited Averasboro on a Saturday. No one else was in the fields or museum with us, so we enjoyed running around with our dogs in the area while reading the signposts and appreciating some American history.

The grounds and graveyard are really interesting to see but the museum is not well-maintained and the viewpoints and sympathy towards the Confederacy is evident. Interesting stop if you get a chance.

This is one historical sight we found easily as the the signs are there for you. What a lovely museum with so much info and artefacts. The area is spotless and obviously cared for with love and respect. The cemetery up the road is the same but not alot of graves or info as they seemed to be mass graves... More

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.
