This is a very impressive collection of mostly military items from both the union and the confederate sides of this terrible conflict. If you are fortunate you will be there when one of the reinactors is demonstrating his uniform, equipment and weapons. The opening film is a propaganda film for the need for war and the defense of one's home... More

Not being from USA felt the need to brush up on this conflict. Obviously set up and run by a group of capable enthusiasts. Good to see people who love what they do. Found the video a bit long and a bit boring. But was pleasantly surprised how well done and interesting the exhibits were. Plus the shop had a... More

I recently visited here as I live in Texas. It is a good medium sized museum with a very extensive collection of artifacts from the Civil War period. There are presentations inside by the employees and short videos and it is very educational. If you are looking to explore some Civil War history and have 3 hours or so to... More

Based off reviews that this was a great find for history buffs we stopped in during our weekend in Fort Worth. Lots of artifacts and good information. Take time to watch the short movie - good info and well done. The dresses were incredible.

I started off by watching the short video on Texas's role in the Civil War. There are also many artifacts from the war, such as uniforms, rifles, cannon artillery, flags, and many other items. Half the museum will be artifacts from the US side, the other half will be from the Confederate side. Worth a stop if in the area.

My husband and I spent three hours going through this today, it was absolutely amazing! If you are interested in history at all you need to go through this. The pieces that they have in there are just incredible I can't believe they have all of them. It is truly interesting and educational, a must see.

Big mistake, we arrived nowhere !! then we realized our mistake and off we arrived ! This museum is greatly organized. First, we discovered the military collection, split between the union soldiers and the... More
