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

Small museum! However, there is many interesting Civil war area artifacts. Has some stuff from General Lee. It's right by the WWII museum and worth walking over and spending an hour or two.

Well done exhibits, especially concerning the Red River Campaign and the Battle of Mansfield. Great portraits and knowledgeable people, very helpful. They have a paper guide in every language. I saw them hand out one in Chinese. Be sure to check out the restored piano. An easy walk to the WWII museum.

No photos allowed and that's what I'm into so a bit disappointed. It was dark and didn't have a great deal of memorabilia. I liked it but wouldn't rave about it.

Found this by accident when visiting the art gallery next door. But this was the real gem for me. There is lots of artefacts and clothes from the civil war all well displayed and annotated. Enjoyable film too. Will now watch the Ken Burns documentary again to put in context.

Even if you are not a southerner you will find the Confederate Museum to be very entertaining and thought provoking. Yes this is a museum and all items are relics from the war, (nothing civil about it). I do not believe you will ever find as much history in one place pertaining to the war. Very interesting.
