Wow so much history in one small museum. We really learned a lot when we visited the museum on our last trip to NOLA.

The Confederate Memorial Museum is a must see for those interested in the Civil War. The building is a remarkable structure constructed with respect for those who served in the war. The exhibits offer a deeper history of the war and those who fought in it. The docents are helpful and exceptionally knowledgeable. This Museum is directly across the street... More

Went here after trying to find a place to bring my students to learn about the Civil War. Lots of very interesting pieces. This place opened January 8, 1891! There are many flags that were actually flown during the war and uniforms donated by the families so that there story will go on. A must see if you like history.

Just across the street from the WWII Museum this little museum resides in the most wonderful building. Excellent collection of Civil War memorabilia from the Confederate point of view.

Agreed that this museum has a great collection of artifacts;however, I felt like I was seeing the same collection that a visitor would have seen 10 years ago. I felt there was too much focus on the commanders and and leaders not a representation of the soldier's story. I would like to see presentation on regimental histories, where they were... More

A different perspective on the Civil War and its aftermath. Well worth spending a bit of time there. Only half a block from the WW2 museum

This museum is by far the greatest depository of Confederate Historical items outside of Richmond. The preservation of documents, artifacts, flags, and photographs is an ongoing process, so not everything in the collection is available for viewing. The beautiful Richardsonian building is a fine example of neo-Romanesque architecture.

Rather small, but full of great civil war artifacts. One of the best Civil War museums I've visited.

We enjoyed our visit to this museum. The staff was very knowledgeable and there were lots of unusual and interesting artifacts to see. The architecture of the building is wonderful. It is indeed a remnant of the past.

This smallish museum is very interesting, especially to a Yankee who doesn't know enough about the Confederate heroes of the Civil War. Southern uniforms, artifacts, maps--and personal possessions of President Jefferson Davis and family. It's a very low-key museum with a subtle sense of gravitas: we arrived at 10, when they open, and were there to see the guy raise... More
