As a Civil War historian, I enjoy museums with this theme. The Texas Civil War Museum does a great job telling the story of Texans during the war, and it comes from a different perspective than that of my Northern upbringing. There are many very interesting artifacts there, and I even saw a sword that had been presented to an... More

I would give this more but the lady at the front was rude and the young guy next to her was plaing on his phone. They didnt say welcome..thank you..nothing. Now all I can think about is that...hard to enjoy the museum :(

s is smaller but still has many, many interesting artifacts. I enjoyed it and so did my son. The ladies gowns and fashions were so interesting! The guns and uniforms and equipment were impressive. General Grants sword was the hi-light for me. I learned several new tidbits. The book store portion of the gift shop is impressive.

Great museum, with displays of articles from both sides of the war. As a southerner, born of southerners, and as a genealogy/family research enthusiast, this place has very special meaning to me. It is hallowed ground. Great place to visit, great place to learn about the real events and the real issues of that war.

My husband & I went to the museum to check it out. It sounded interesting. We went in the front door and my husband said he needed to use the restroom. I told him I would buy the tickets so we could go in as soon as he got out. I went to the register where it said to purchase... More

Museum is worth a visit. It is set up very nice with lots of information. Definitely worth the price. Plan on spending 2~3 hours. My 11 yr old loved it 2 yr old got a little bored. I would love to come back and check it out more without a toddler.

I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. It was inexpensive and very informational. First, I went to sit through a film they show with admission price about the civil war. It was well put together and gave a lot of information. It was about 30 minutes long. Then I went into the main museum. There were so many things to look at... More

Whether you are a Southerner or a Yankee you will benefit from viewing the numerous exhibits that represent both sides of the War between the States. I'm embarrassed to say that after years of reading about this place this was my first visit. I assumed it was just a few displays of the same old things I have seen all... More

If you are into Texas history- you'll enjoy stopping here. If you are a local DFW resident- look up the Fort Worth Civil War Round Table for a schedule of the many scheduled free lectures in the area as well. At the museum you can watch the movie "Our Homes Our Rights"- Texas in the Civil War, though on the... More
