When I think about the American Civil War, Texas does not come to mind. It's probably because I learned about the major battles that took place in the eastern part of the United States. I didn't know how much of a role Texas played in the Civil War until I came here. The price to enter the museum is $6... More

A lot of good Civil War information, not just from Texas. Most items had a story with them. A person dressed as a Confederate soldier roomed the museum and pointed out highlight items. Also had items you could hold. Price of admission was six dollars. If you are a history buff it is worth a visit.

The Texas Civil War Museum in Ft Worth is great! We appreciated how it compared the artifacts of the union on the north wall with comparable confederate artifacts on the south wall so you could easily see both. We also enjoyed how most artifacts memorialized the individual who wore/used the item. They have many original flags, artillery, guns, and a... More

Don't let the building exterior fool you, there is an amazing museum inside. An excellent collection of Civil War artifacts in museum quality condition. It has equal collections of Union and Confederate Armies. Well worth a visit, but not much else in the area.

My husband and I loved visiting the museum. We brought our 8 year old. She enjoyed the word search and scavenger hunt they provided, and really enjoyed the display of women's and children's dresses, shoes, and bonnets. Tons of amazing artifacts and photos. Amazing displays of all the weapons and various artillery used! I really enjoyed all the things the... More

We learned a lot about the civil war...very informative and covers both Union and Confederate sides well. Very well laid out...Confederate artifacts are on the south; Union on the North side so it is easy to compare and contrast what each side had. Make sure to watch the movie...very well done and exhibits will mean more if you watch it... More

Take the time to visit this great museum. The price is right, Yankees and Rebs are both honored and respected. I will go back with all "outa towners". Fascinating and informative.
