The detail and authentic content of this museum is absolutely amazing. Presented from the Gray and Blue side, it presents the challenges each side faced, resources available in meeting those challenges. The period clothing (men's, women's and children's) is breathtaking and plentiful. Staff is very knowledgeable of the museum contents and Civil War history and eager to answer any question... More

Once again - don't judge a book by it's cover - plain little building on the outskirts of Ft. Worth and inside an incredible treasure. Informative lead in short movie explains a lot about Texas troops during the Civil War - the exhibit itself is huge and divided very nicely to show both sides of the war. I love this... More

Well done museum! Interesting short film sets the scene. Well curated exhibition of Union and Confederate artifacts. Amazing collection of dresses from 1860-1890.

You should not miss this museum if you have any interest in history. As a fan of the Civil War, I was very pleasantly surprised. Many unique and interesting items from both sides of the war. Very nice artillery collection. My wife enjoyed the collection of Victorian-era dresses after she tired of the military stuff. We spent several hours and... More

Our Car club recently visited this Museum on the west side of Ft. Worth. The museum is divided into three galleries: Civil War Collection, Victorian Dress Collection and the Texas Confederate Collection. All three were great exhibits and were presented in a very interesting way. I enjoyed seeing General U. S. Grant's coat. There were guns, swords, uniforms and flags... More

In addition being a nice small museum with a verity of displays from both the Confederate and Union sides of the war, it also has some very nice people working there. This would be a good place to take your kids when they are studying the civil war in school. The cost is very reasonable and the location is easy... More

I was pleasantly surprised at all the artifacts in this little museum. I especially enjoyed how the Union and Confederate sides were separate yet ran parallel. This allowed comparison between the Union surgical tools and Confederate surgical tools etc. The ladies' historical clothing display is especially lovely and fascinating. Especially the bird hats! I definitely did not have enough time... More

I re-enact as a Union soldier in the 6th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry. The young employees here were the usual vacuous, uninformed teenagers. I met an older gentleman there who was very informative and we talked about the war for quite a while. People need to learn not to get into a CW trivia contest with me. All in all we... More
