The Texas Civil War Museum is the best museum of it's kind west of the Mississippi. They have lots of artifacts, guns, uniforms, doctors implements, flags, paintings, all sorts of things. And for the ladies there is a period dress museum too.

The displays are well arranged and explained. It is a hidden jewel on the west side of Fort Worth. I can't wait to go back. The gift shop is well stocked with gift items and books.

Before my trip to TX., I checked on line for historical museums and chose this museum. All I can say is that it was greater than my great expectations. It was fantastic! The soldier outfits, gadgets they rode, carried, and needed with them on the battle field is very interesting. The section showing what the hospitals used to care for... More

My husband and I took our son to the museum as he loves the Civil War. It's in a small building so I didn't think it would be much. Much to my surprise, it's a fascinating museum full of great historical pictures, costumes,various uniforms and arms. It had very personal stories of participants in the war and information on each... More

This is a very well done museum: it has some very special items e.g., General Grant's field jacket that was worn by him at the Appomattox surrender. And his ceremonial swords. And Scartlett O'Hara's green bonnet made from salon drapes - the actual film bonnet! Many armaments and relics of Texas involvement in the war. And the section on women's... More

As "Yankees" visiting Texas for Spring Break, my children (ages 10-15) became aware of the confederate flags and mention of Civil War thru out our travels in Texas. We had many discussions about the Civil War including the political aspects (States rights vs. Federal government control, the abolishing of slavery, etc). We decided to include a visit to the Civil... More

As a Canadian, I did not know a lot about this war. There are numerous displays laid out in an orderly manner. The ladies' gowns on display were great and gave a good lesson on fashion styles of the day. The gift shop is full of great books.

My husband loves history so when we had the chance to stop by the Texas Civil War Museum, we obviously took it. We went with our two kids (9 and 6). The museum is very small but it has a lot of interesting pieces. There is a quick movie that they play that tells about the history of Texas in... More

When I think about the American Civil War, Texas does not come to mind. It's probably because I learned about the major battles that took place in the eastern part of the United States. I didn't know how much of a role Texas played in the Civil War until I came here. The price to enter the museum is $6... More
