Not politically correct at all, but fascinating Old South collection. Not kept in museum quality because I expect it's not properly funded, but worth a look for every ethnic group. Provides an understanding of Civil War and Old South mentality.

Confederate Memorial Hall is gem within New Orleans. It has an amazing display of original Civil War Flags, Uniforms, and personal items from the time period. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and are adding new artifacts for display all the time. It's refreshing to see so many artifacts on display especially when the WWII museum next door seems to be... More

This Confederate museum is very nice and has some cool items and pieces in it. But it is very very small. You can spend about 30 mins max here. While it is cheap and definitely worth the visit. I wish it was bigger and more immersive. It kind of pales in comparisons to the WWII museum just down the road.... More

For an admission price of $8, it's a great place to view artefacts from the Civil War and to remember that these were not just soldiers but real people fighting for a cause. It's housed in its own building which feels like a Victorian church. The items are well preserved and the layout is refreshingly quite old fashioned. Being in... More

I've been wanted to visit this museum for years, but never did until a few weeks ago. It was filled with an assortment or meaningful artifacts and the curators were very knowledgable and helpful. I highly recommend a visit.

This museum is full of awesome artifacts from the War, especially the articles belonging to Jefferson Davis. The admission is also very reasonable at $8 per person. I would definitely recommend this museum to others.

Very nice collection of confederate items from the US Civil War. See the WWII museum and then walk across the street and visit the Confederate Memorial Museum before going home.

This is a gem. An amazing collection of battle flags, weapons, medical kits, uniforms, personal belongings, letters, accoutrements and a wide variety of other items. They hold the second largest collection of CSA battle flags other than the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Va. A nominal fee, good gift shop, docent tours available. Unlike the WW II museum .... More
