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

For the enthusiast in all of us. Well worth the price of admission. It is a self supporting facility. Civil war memorabilia was awesome.

So awesome to see the amount of historical treasures they have here. If you love history you will enjoy what they exhibit here. Just from the clothes to the knowledge behind everything. Super cool little building with tons to offer.

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.

This museum is as good as anyone in the country. I have been to the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg PA and it of the same quality. We were fortunate to be there when they had demonstrations of weapons and soldiers dressed in both Union and Confederate Soldiers. This museum should not be missed!

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.
