The Guilford Courthouse Park is easy to drive to, just north of downtown Greensboro and off of Battleground Avenue. The park is rarely crowded as it is not one of the high profile national parks, which makes it all the more enjoyable. You can park right next to the main entrance. There are two well-done short movies that provide a... More

I took my 2 grandchildren, ages 8 & 12 so they could start on their National Parks Jr Ranger book. The 12 year old did great, the 8 year old thought there was too much paper work involved in word search puzzles, etc. I hoped for a little more Ranger involvement. It is a beautiful area with a lot of... More

We took our 4th grader to visit and learn about NC history. She had a wonderful time and so did we. She enjoyed the film and said it made it easier to understand what the battleground stands for.

Guilford courthouse military park is well worth a couple of hours of your time! We started with a video overview of the Revolutionary war battle that took place there. Visitors can then take a walking tour of the battle, with stops at important locations that are identified by statues and markers. One can listen to an audio tour on one's... More

If you're looking for a nice walk with several historical monuments, this is a nice place to kill a couple of hours if the weather is nice.

This is the coolest place to walk on a hot day. Such a great way to get back to nature and enjoy the outdoors. Being a huge history buff, I enjoy the programs offered by the visitor center.

This park has markers along a 2 mile route that tells what happened in each location. The visitor center is full of history as well as some video clips. Trying to imagine a battle that happened right where you were standing was surreal. It's also a great place to walk, bike, jog, etc.

I have always gone to what I referred to as Battleground Park for walking, playing with the kids and walking the dogs. I am almost ashamed to say that only recently did I discover the historical museum at the park. Wow! You can get an entire Revolutionary War lesson at the museum... Then tour the actual battlefield and learn even... More

We were stopping to stretch our legs on a long trip and stopped at the science center, but we also wanted to get a National Park Passport Cancellation stamp and this was such a place. Now, I've been to plenty of battlefields and, to tell the truth, I'm usually not at all impressed. And I wouldn't have been for this... More

This is a wonderful museum with rare and beautiful artifacts. So I cringe when I see period documents not being properly preserved and displayed (exposed to UV light) with their temporary exhibits - I have experience in this as it is part of my work. It is obvious that the museum was set up by a experienced preservation company, but... More
