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

We got to Guilford Courthouse National Monument late in the afternoon but it was well worth the stop. We watched two movies telling about the battle and the strategic maneuvering if troops. Both were very interesting. The movies are shown in the hour and the second movie is shown on the quarter hour. We also walked around the grounds of... More

This was a great visit during s family vacation. The kids enjoyed learning about the revolution and the signs are displays were a big help sitting through the video and movie prior to exploring helped a lot. The exhibits were great and showcased many great artifacts. The Rangers were friendly and interacted with the kids as part of the junior... More

Everything about this place is excellent. The setting could not be more beautiful. The visitor has the option to hike to the historical markers or drive through the area. The visitors center is beautiful. You can avail yourself of a presentation that shows a map and explains the advance of the troops on both side. There is a highly effective... More

This is an outstanding park if you are into the American Revolution. This is the scene that Mel Gibson tried to emulate for his movie The Patriot. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
