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

We stopped in here because we were in the area and decided to stop in the World War II museum across the street. It was a bit more than we were expecting to spend so we stopped in here. Much less..and for a reason. My highlight was seeing the chamber pot. That gives you a clue I much I enjoyed... More

I love history and boy I was satisfied with my trip to this museum. Learned a lot about Jefferson Davis and Louisiana's part in the Civil War. Great original not replica artifacts. Well worth the visit.

I had heard about this museum and had wanted to go and I am glad I did. This museum houses one of the largest collections of CSA artifacts I have ever seen. Uniforms, battle flags, personal items and weapons of all kinds are featured. Admission was $8 which was a bargain.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the war through the people who were there. Their personal memorabilia has been preserved for all to see.

I hope the people seeking to erase monuments and museums like this can step back and see the history instead of the hate. It's what happened and this place is a great memory for those who fought for their cause.

What a beautiful building and its history. It is truly sad that places like this are in danger of being erased because of political correctness.These monuments are testimony to their creators’ desire not only to honor their ancestors and the cause for which they fought, but to shape the historical memory of future generations. By placing monuments extolling the courage... More
