You walk the line between the war that rages over your head between the north and south. You hear the death cries of the solides as they die many not understanding how this happend and how is split their country and family. A shinning diamond of a smal first class museum where you least expect it. A thank you to... More

The museum is on the campus of Navarro college. The address given is a run down residential area. Upon finding the museum it is a very outstanding experience.

Well worth the time to go thru. We were there on a day when we were the only ones in there. Personal tour was wonderful. The man giving the tour was very knowledgeable. The Art exhibit was not open so they just charged us half price which we were not expecting. Very pleasant people.

We throughly enjoyed our visit of the Pearce Museum. We appreciated the personal tour by Mr. Brittan. We learned so much about the Civil War. It would have been nice to look at the museum more after his guided tour. Just like any other fine museum, they haven't enough room to display all their artifacts. We understood this and were...

We had a staff member talk us through most of it, which is fine, but didn't allow us enough time to look and read at the collection at our... More

I am more of a Revolutionary War buff, but learned a lot in the civil war museum connected with Navarro College in Corsicana. The staff there is very friendly and helpful. I'm glad my Mom and I stopped by on her visit.

Located in quaint Corsicana, Texas, the museum offers a unique perspective from a grunt soldiers' perspective of the Civil War and many battles. It remains fair in its discussion of "north" vs. "south" issues, and doesn't get into the politics side of things. So from this perspective, it offers a lot for someone interested in the Civil War. The bad... More
