The way this museum is set up amazed me. Information about the South to the right, information about the North to the left, in a compare and contrast way. There is also a movie about how Texas had a part in the civil war. This small, but inexpensive museum has very well kept civil war artifacts. It is only $6... More

Texas was a Confederate state, but this museum has a good balance and representation of both the Union and Confederate armies. The displays are well prepared and presented, with the Union and Confederate displays on opposite sides of the rooms. Items belonging to GEN Lee, GEN Grant, and others are displayed. All branches of the armies are displayed and the... More

I'm a history nut! So, my husband and I had a great time exploring this little gem and learning about the history of Texas!

The Texas Civil War Museum has friendly staff and excellent exhibits. They have well preserved military uniforms, cannons, accurate model boats, many flags, as well as a large collection of guns. The Victorian dress collection was a delight for me especially, as I sew. We visited on the weekend and they had a band dressed in period costumes playing period... More

The museum was really nice. Filled with lots of education information in regards to the civil war and how Texas was involved. They had some fun games for the kids to play while they went around the museum. But my favorite part was the women's dresses.

My family really enjoyed this museum and had a scavenger hunt for the kids. Which was a great idea and allowed me to walk and read as we wondered through the museum. The women's historical dress collection was pretty amazing. I'd recommend stopping here and it's a great way to spend 90 minutes of one's vacation.

Off the beaten path but a must see outside of fort worth. For $6 you see a TON of authentic civil war items. Flags, outfits, musical instruments, surgical tools, artillery and Victorian era garb. I absolutely loved walking through seeing both the northern and southern views. My only negative critique is the lack of focus on the slave and black... More

This museum was quite enjoyable. Very nice area and lots to purchase in the gift shop. The movie they show is very informative, and the pieces in the collection you surely wont see anywhere else. Take time to go and see!!!

Up close and personal. Worth 1-2 hours. Cost effective. Wonderful artifacts from Civil War, from clothing to personal items to weapons. Almost made you feel like you knew the soldiers and the hardships of war (on the ground and face-to-face). Certainly worth the trip if you are in the Fort Worth area. Google for more information.
