If you have any interest in the Civil War, this is the museum to visit. You will not be disappointed. It's full of personal letters, artifacts, and maps. Plan to spend several hours here as there is much to see. The western art is a fine collection of mostly recent paintings and sculptures. It's a good collection of the newer... More

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...

This museum is small, but has plenty to see! Great collection of artefacts from the civil war. We found it very interesting, but would of liked to look around by ourselves. 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
