A step back in time in a beautiful setting. The Park Service does a great job bringing April 1865 back to life. We are so lucky to have them. The road the armies marched on is right there for one to walk on, which makes it so easy to imagine it all. Well worth the trip.

This really takes you back right to the battle time when the civil war ended. There is a fellow dressed back in the day and "lives" back in the day talking to visitors as if it was the real day. Awesome. Really enjoyed it!!

This was truly way more than expected. We lucked into a reenactment weekend so the learning and experience was amplified by these tremendous volunteers. The visitor center was informative and well staffed with helpful volunteers. The grounds were well maintained and a pleasure to explore. General Grant interacted with my kids a lot and made them feel special while also... More

I was at Appomattox years ago, and for the most part, little has changed. The living interpreters are great, there is a lot to see. We were there the weekend that they had baseball, so that was fun to watch. You can stroll/hike all over the grounds. We did not do the long hike around as we had limited time.... More

I wish we'd had much more time in summery, cicada-buzzing Appomattox Court House NHP. (Full disclosure: son is interning at the Park for the summer, so we were especially excited to visit.) $10 per vehicle. DO NOT MISS THE MOVIE UPSTAIRS IN THE VISITOR CENTER which is especially well done. Enjoy the historical character actors (who included a period physician,... More

Ok.... This place is a bit outta the way but if in the area of Charlottesville or Richmond, I'd say it's a must see. I say that for 2 reasons; one, because of the obvious history of the place. Two, because of the co-located (2 miles away) Museum of the Confederacy which adds a bunch of detail about Virginia's part... More

I'm not a big history buff but it's always interesting to see places you studied as a child. Nice easy walk, really nice and helpful staff.

After visiting several battlefields this was refreshing! Start at the visitor center and get a guided tour. The Rangers were friendly and full of information. After listening to the story we did a self guided tour of the McLean house and other houses there. There are some people dressed in period clothing who share the history with you. I appreciated...

I understand that the area was reconstructed but still would not have missed out seeing it. Staff were very knowledgeable and even when I am a great history buff I still learned a lot. to feel the fact of what took place there 150 years ago it was well worth it.

I was told they have summer hours drove all the way from NY to find it closes at 5pm. I would have gotten there probably on time if I had not taken the route 20 that I was told to take
