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

Right across from the WWII museum, its convenient to visit these two places together. The staff is very friendly and was able to answer everyone's questions. The admission price is very reasonable as well. One concern, there are no pictures allowed inside. You'll be amazed at how some of these old uniforms and flags were put together and are still...

It was great to see a museum with so many Confederate items. They had personal items donated by family members following the war. There was a small video that highlighted some of the items and the people they came from. It is recommended for the Civil War history buff by a Civil War history buff.

It was so interesting to see these old, amazing items. Looking at the uniforms, I was impressed by how small (thin) these men were. Looking even closer, I could see the hand stitching. Even some of the flags were made by handstitching ... someone painstakingly stitched on each star or each letter by hand!!! I will hem my pants by... More

A very small museum devoted to the Confederacy with various items from soldiers, Robert E Lee, Jefferson Davis, and so on. A short movie is also available for viewing. The building itself is of historic significance. Very close to the Ogden (right next door) and across from the National WW II museum.

This is a small museum but full of interesting artifacts. Many of the exhibits are objects belonging to a named person and tell that person's story during the war. Many similar museums have many objects but it's more interesting to know who owned these and how they faired in that time. Well worth the visit and for anyone interested in... More
