Great place to visit. They had a lot of fascinating items there- civil war uniforms, weapons, instruments, medical instruments, and my favorite, tons of victorian gowns.

This museum is for the history buff or anyone interested in learning more about the Civil War & Texas' involvement. It has an extensive collection of artifacts, photographs, and I especially enjoyed seeing the Victorian Ladies' Gown Collection. There are also a lot of guns, cannons, etc. it is good that we have these things for the future generations.

First visit. Folks up front seemed nice. Lots of old guns and clothing...very cool. No wonder we lost the war....we didn't make enough guns! Will go back. You can buy actual civil war bullets!

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
