I have been here several times and I always enjoy it. You are greeted at the door with a friendly hello and a smile. Admission is cheap compared to other museums. The displays are really nice and we'll thought out. There are several sit and watch stations that go into details about the section you are in. Do not miss... More

My Dad was in town visiting and we decided to stop in for a quick visit. Four hours later we were still reading about the exhibits. My sons are both war and history enthusiasts and they thoroughly enjoyed this museum and we all learned a lot.

It is an ever growing exhibit of civil war items. Not only do they have uniforms, flags, and weaponry, they also have a growing collection of models of civil war naval vessels.

If you want a feel of the north and south for displays of the Civil War, this is the must stop. Very well done.

I didn't expect to see so much! All the uniforms and other items of clothing prove to me that people really were much smaller then. An 18 inch waist was common. Some of the men, who accomplished so much, were not giants after all, they, too, were much smaller. Wars were fought in such a way that you could expect... More

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

Found whilst at a loose end in Fort Worth. I went in not understanding the civil war with little knowledge, came out knowledgeable. Laid out well and informative. Staff very helpful. and friendly.

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
