This is an excellent collection of civil war memorabilia showing both sides of the war. We were particularly drawn to the field medic area and handwritten letters from slaves working as spies. I have been twice, once with my family and once with a group of students I scheduled a field trip for. My 5th grade students were blown away... More

Good place to go if you are driving through the town and have time to kill. I wouldn't travel here just to come here, but it is an interesting stop to make if you are in the area.

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.
