The museum is quite small in comparison to its across the street neighbor - WWII museum. There is a short film and quite a few Confederate artifacts, plus a small gift shop.

For all the mayors feelings in this city about tearing down the statues and history of the confederates and civil war, I hope they leave this lovely little museum alone. Tip - go straight to the back room and watch the short video first as it really helps to understand what the south had to endure. What struck me was... More

We found the artifacts to be well preserved. It is important to remember that what has made us a great nation is the fact that when the wars are won we rebuild and mend. Rather than destroy the history and dignity of the people we who lost. Lee was a great general! The people who fought for the Confederacy were... More

Neat museum with Southern history and charm. Loved the fact that it is the South's oldest museum. If you want to see the beautiful war memorials hurry because the city is hell bent on tearing them down. They are very close to this little gem.

Small museum with real life applications. You realize this was not so long ago when the last confederate died in the 1940's. An interesting take on life in the south and particularly NOLA Well worth the $8 entrance fee

I think they presented the exhibits in a reasonably fair way, but you have to remember they aren't honoring saints here. Lots of interesting objects, nice little gift shop. It's sort of across the street from the National WW2 museum.

In addition to the wonderful architecture, the exhibits are most interesting. Next to Ogden Museum and WW2 Museum, so we visited all three on a rainy day. Plenty of parking.

The museum is small with a $8.00 admittance for adults. My wife and I travelled the civil war trail, called the 'Hallowed Ground' which held many museums. In comparison I felt disappointed with this museums limited artifacts. I was however, impressed with there authenticity. It is a short walk from the WWII exhibit across the street.

Having visited civil war museums in the likes of Atlanta, this one simply does not stack up in presenting an engaging journey. It does however house an extraordinary and vast collection of Confederate artifacts most specific to Lousiana, and on that basis alone worthy of a visit.

I liked the look of the building and wanted to see it. Being from the northern US I was most amazed by the almost complete lack of any reference to slavery. It was just a war- not much about anything but the people who fought, what they wore, their weapons, equipment. Zip about the north, very little about the huge... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighborhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
