This is a definite must see when in New Orleans, especially if you're a history buff!! Personal artifacts of notable figures -(Jefferson Davis' saddle) restored flags and just about every piece of equipment the soldiers used. Detailed information on campaigns and personal letters of soldiers. This museum is incredible!!! Very informative!!!

The museum contains a wealth of personal objects associated with various confederate generals and government figures, and having these personal objects makes this museum come alive. The information that you learn has faces and memories attached. It is a self-guided tour, so you can linger at the things that interest you the most. It would have been nice to have... More

Entertainment coupon has a BOGO on this attraction or it is $8.00 for adults. It is across the street from the WWII museum, so easy to take in both. Steve is a Buckskinner, so thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the relics! There is a movie that you can sit & watch, but opted to buy the DVD for $15.00 &... More

One of the nicest Civil War museums I have visited. Many of the artifacts are accompanied by information about their original owners, including letters and diary entries. I was especially interested in the War Logs -- pieces of tree trunks and branches with bullets and shrapnel embedded in them, which were collected by veterans as mementos after the war. Have...

We thought that the museum would be a recap of the War between the States and who won what and when. We were surprised to find that it was more of an accounting of individual Confederate soldiers stories. There was no timeline of events and who won what. It did give you a sense of what the soldiers and their... More

This small museum is located very near the WWll museum. It's packed with many artifacts from the Civil War which are nicely displayed. I suggest catching the short film before you start looking at the displays....it aids in understanding about this time in our nation's history. Here is an interesting tidbit...this is the oldest museum in Louisiana.

This quaint little museum is a full of artifacts from the civil war, and it is pretty amazing (albeit also a little creepy) to see the pictures and toys and trinkets of people from that era. The staff at the front desk were super welcoming and friendly, and I think this is definitely a great little stop if you're in... More

With air conditioning, the South has risen. Deemed “Louisiana’s Oldest Museum” since 1891, this magnificent brick structure has a cathedral-like vaulted wooden ceiling. Though pix aren’t allowed, an exception was made for TripAdvisor in the following photo. At thirty feet, it’s amazing the cantilevered trusses can support the weight. Original gas lamps are electric conversions, and termite-resistant cypress wood panels... More

This little museum, in a lovely old church located almost just next door to the WWII Museum, will occupy an hour or so of your time (more if you're a real buff). The displays concentrate on various aspects of Louisianian's involvement in the Civil War and there are many interesting artifacts, letters, journals, uniforms, etc. I was unenthusiastic on my...
