My family and I visited the main house. Then we tried the cell phone tour, after the third location didn't work, we said to heck with it and left!

I liked that you dont have to get out of your car!! FREE ADMISSION!!! You can turn your phone onto this recording so while driving through you have your very own tour guide. I am a history bluff!

As you travel thru the park, you can stop and read all the monuments, take plenty of time and stop at all of them, you will get a lump in your throat at the thought of all who have died so we can enjoy the freedoms we have here today. Our country is great because of what we were founded... More

Great place for kids learning history or for adults to leanr more about the Civil War. Wilder tower is great for those that have the ability to climb the 136 or so stone steps to the top.

This was the first time I ever used my smart phone for a tour. The battlefields which are extensive, cover a few miles. There is a taped tour that can be accessed by your phone, with a narrator giving the details of that particular battle. Seeing the battlefields with the narrative is a sobering experience and we were glad that... More

Rangers here are extremely knowledgeable and the walking tour was fascinating. These rangers put most National Park rangers to shame. HIghly reccommended as part of any trip to Chattanooga.

Why people would want to steal plaques from a national park is beyond me, but that is what some ding dongs have done. This is a beautiful park with no entrance fee. Loved the climb to the top of a tower monument and the driving tour is very nice and easy to navigate. My only suggestion is that if you... More

Went to this attraction for the education aspect of the Civil War. Excellent movie explaining the campaign across the entire area. Helped us understand the movement of the troops. Enjoyed the driving tour because we saw the movie first. NOW ...the diamond found at this museum is the gun collection. Almost missed seeing it. It is tucked back in the... More

I previously reviewed this attraction in 2012, so I will not double up on what I have previously written. However, during that review I mentioned that the show in the Visitor's Center needed to be put back to the special effects driven experience it had been. This was not done, BUT there is now a new movie in the theater... More
