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

I hadn't ever been to a Civil War Museum and I was impressed. I was able to pick up some great things from gift shop for my class. They have some wonderful gun/ammo, clothing and various other things on display. I was very pleased!

We were randomly seeing what historical sites there are around us and had the occasion to spend an afternoon at the Civil War Museum. WOW!! We were there until they closed. We had NO idea that there was so much to see. It is VERY well organized. There is a delightful and extensive, reasonably priced gift shop in the entrance.... More

Not much to look at. They have a collection of fire arms and clothing and stuff that was used in earlier times but not much about "civil war"

cindy h, Manager at Texas Civil War Museum, responded to this review

Museum is confused about this review. We only have items (several thousand) of the Civil War, both Union and Confederate and most artifacts have documented the soldier to whom it belonged. On exhibit are two dozen original flags, the largest collection of Texas items from the war, 40 fully outfitted Victorian dresses with all of the accessories. Everything on display... More

If you are a Civil War buff, like me, you will really enjoy this museum. Be sure to call ahead and make certain they are open because, sometimes, their hours change a little.

My husband and I are intrigued by all things Civil War related. The museum was laid out very nicely and had a lot of interesting artifacts and stories that accompanied them. It was particularly interesting to us since we are from the north and this museum, although presenting history and facts from both sides, has a more southern perspective which... More

Most Civil War museums that I have visited have some connection in its location to a Civil War battlefield, or to one of the significant towns that existed during the Civil War. This museum does not. It's actually located in White Settlement, TX, which is a western suburb of Fort Worth. Dallas and Fort Worth were small towns on the... More
