We've been putting off going to this museum for some time and finally got around to it. The film was a bit hokey for my taste, but I'm sure kids eat it up. The film was informative, I will give it that. The artifacts are nicely presented. You will walk away from this museum having learned something.

If you invest a couple of hours at the Texas Civil War Museum, you'll come away much more informed about the war, what caused it, who was instrumental in the directions it went, and how it caused grief and trials to all involved. It is an extremely fair and diverse display of both sides of the conflict, showing many images... More

My husband loves all things Civil War. In fact part of this trip away was to visit this place. To be truthful I was looking to just endure it. But to my surprise it was very interesting. It is in a building built to look like an old Southern Plantation. But is really just a big warehouse. There is a... More

I had read about this museum and have been wanting to come for a while. It was not disappointing. As a matter of fact, it was one of the best Civil War museums that I have ever been to in my life. The museum is broken into sections representing infantry, calvary, artillery, naval and home front including an amazing collection... More

This museum honors Texas' heroes both in the field and at home. Texans fought for what they believed in during the Civil War, and their lives and stories of valor make all Southerners proud. The effects of their lives are well displayed in a refined setting befitting the sacrifices made by those that served the lost cause.

So much to see, well displayed and extensive. Location is on Loop 820 West, ample parking on site. Take your time and enjoy a several hour visit. It the War Between the States is an item of iterest, you could spend the day.

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.
