Museum is worth a visit. It is set up very nice with lots of information. Definitely worth the price. Plan on spending 2~3 hours. My 11 yr old loved it 2 yr old got a little bored. I would love to come back and check it out more without a toddler.

I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. It was inexpensive and very informational. First, I went to sit through a film they show with admission price about the civil war. It was well put together and gave a lot of information. It was about 30 minutes long. Then I went into the main museum. There were so many things to look at... More

Whether you are a Southerner or a Yankee you will benefit from viewing the numerous exhibits that represent both sides of the War between the States. I'm embarrassed to say that after years of reading about this place this was my first visit. I assumed it was just a few displays of the same old things I have seen all... More

If you are into Texas history- you'll enjoy stopping here. If you are a local DFW resident- look up the Fort Worth Civil War Round Table for a schedule of the many scheduled free lectures in the area as well. At the museum you can watch the movie "Our Homes Our Rights"- Texas in the Civil War, though on the... More

This is an easy to reach museum and surprises the visitor with the extensive displays of historic photos, rifles, soldier's paraphernalia, cannons and period women's wear from the Civil War. It's not crowded and one can spend as much or as little time examining the displays. A good selection of historical books is at the gift shop.

We went to this museum with low expectations, and our entire family truly enjoyed it! This museum has an impressive, extensive collection of artifacts from both the Union and Confederacy along with informative, interesting videos. The teenage girls in our group were fascinated with the Victorian dresses. I didn't really appreciate Texas' role in the Civil War until I spent... More

What a wonderful place to visit even if the Civil War is not your "thing". Huge selection of women's dresses and an outstanding display of Civil War items. I will make a return visit.

This museum gives the visitor an idea of what it was like to fight for both the North and the South. The collection features clothing, weapons, medical instruments, and so much more. The videos are informative and interesting. Good dioramas describe some of the war's battles. The building also includes an excellent collection of 19th century women's clothing--all beautifully preserved.... More
