The museum is wonderful - they have over 346 weapons on display as well as other artifacts. We watched the movie and then took the driving tour. What is nice about the drive is you have a phone number that you can program into your cell phone and at each tour stop you put in the stop number and you... More

While I tend to prefer the more rural Civil War battlefields such as Shiloh and Antietam, since this one was designated a National Park so long ago, it is largely untouched by the nearby community. I would highly recommend buying the CD driving tour at the visitors center. The ranger guided tours are excellent, provided you get one of the... More

The quality of the artifacts at the Visitor's Center Museum should qualify it as an attraction in its own right, especially the private collection of rifles on display here from an arquebus to modern rifles. This collection provides a historical perspective on rifles, from many other countries as well as the United States, from the 16th century to the present... More

How can you rate a national park? It's like rating your family. Chit/Chat - how it's referred to - became the first national military park. Each section take a day. I can't absorb more than one park area a day. Be prepared to walk a least a little to get the full flavor of both areas. Talk to the rangers... More

My younger sons (8 and 10) went to Chickamauga National Military Park as part of our journey to obtain the Civil War Trail Badge. We were warned this Junior Ranger program was a little rough, but we decided we would stop anyway to check it out. Going to the Visitor's Center and asking for the Junior Ranger Book, the first...

We were staying in Chattanooga and decided to pay a visit to this military park. The visitor center has an interesting exhibit with an overview of the battle of Chickamauga and the importance of the Chattanooga area. There are enough artifacts to make it worthwhile but not so many one is overwhelmed. A short, well documented film that uses primary... More

I absolutely love anything to,do,with the Civil war era! The museum is free and it's very well laid out! It's very informative! The grounds are beautiful! I love to come here while the kids are in school and find some quiet mommy time while walking around looking at the monuments. They take care of the grounds very well and it's... More

This is a very well organized Battlefield with a great video explaining the battle. Wonderful displays inside explaining the Civil War Era. The battlefield is easy to explore with explanations, cannons, and beautiful monuments. Ranger gave a nice presentation along with reenactors who demonstrated cannon fire. Great visit!

For all the civil war battlefields that I have seen so far, I would rank this #2 behind Gettysburg and just before Antetiam. I accidentally caught the ranger car tour, and that was the highlight of the trip. I also love the "Travel Brains" driving tour cd's that are available for some battlefields and this one. Stop in the gift... More

We visited over the weekend and did the tour loop in our car. The cell tour makes each stop much more interesting - you just call the phone number on the tour stop and listen to a narration. We participated in the Jr. Ranger program with our nieces, aged 7 and 9. The program for the 7yo did a good... More
