I never knew much about the Texas civil war. Their web site does not due it justice. If you want something interesting and out of the heat, this is a good way to spend a afternoon. To make it more interesting for youngsters they have a scavenger hunt (adults can play too).

My husband and I had an afternoon date and we chose to go to the Texas Civil War Museum. Entrance fee was inexpensive but so well worth admission. There is a short movie explaining Texas's involvement in the Civil War at the beginning of the tour of the museum. This is so well done and prepares you so you understand... More

I took my 11 year old grandson to the museum. They have a game for younger kids and one for older. We did the one for older kids and my grandson loved it. We spent more time there than I anticipated, but he was just captivated! Good gift shop too.

Went there with my husband who is a US world history teacher. He found it impressive and a good aid for teaching students. I would recommend it to all ages as there is something of interest for everyone. The displays are excellent, staff very helpful and good way to spend a few hours.

Be prepared for room after room of history. Most rooms are set with the North or Union on the North side of the building and the South or Confederate displays on the South side of the building. There are rooms for the Infantry, Calvary, Medical, Navy and Artillery collections. There is an amazing collection of beautiful Victorian Dresses, and there... More

Best Civil War museum west of the Mississippi. If you are a history buff, be sure and allow enough to to look at everything. Awesome museum detailing our history throughout the Civil War.

The way this museum is set up amazed me. Information about the South to the right, information about the North to the left, in a compare and contrast way. There is also a movie about how Texas had a part in the civil war. This small, but inexpensive museum has very well kept civil war artifacts. It is only $6... More

Texas was a Confederate state, but this museum has a good balance and representation of both the Union and Confederate armies. The displays are well prepared and presented, with the Union and Confederate displays on opposite sides of the rooms. Items belonging to GEN Lee, GEN Grant, and others are displayed. All branches of the armies are displayed and the... More

The Texas Civil War Museum has friendly staff and excellent exhibits. They have well preserved military uniforms, cannons, accurate model boats, many flags, as well as a large collection of guns. The Victorian dress collection was a delight for me especially, as I sew. We visited on the weekend and they had a band dressed in period costumes playing period... More
