This battlefield park is very spread out over several miles. It was worth all the driving though because there were displays explaining the action and movement of the troops. Very scenic and good way to commune with nature! A ton of earthworks on every battlefield.

This visit site begins at the main Battlefield Park's Visitor's Center where National Park employees are there in number to assist in getting you the information for the greatest amount of information you will be able to gather in the overall battlefield(s) visit. There are at least 2+ dozen different "sites" to see that range from the very small "farms"... More

This national park should have had “Battlefield” in its name pluralized to Battlefields because Richmond National Battlefield Park encompasses ten battlefields and two more sites associated with the two campaigns for Richmond. They are: Chickahominy Bluff Battlefield, Fort Harrison Battlefield, Drewry's Bluff (Fort Darling) Battlefield, Glendale Battlefield, and Malvern Hill Battlefield---all in Richmond, plus Parker's Battery in Chester, plus Totopotomoy...

Like all Park Service battlefields they provide maps for touring and interesting displays, It has been said that Richmond is the largest open air Confederate museum aand when you see the area designated on the maps, you'll agree.

Overall, this park is informative. It's open virtually everyday 9-4 or 430 with the exception of 1 Jan and Christmas. There is no fee..........but you can incur fees to park. I urge you to space out time & watch the film...its about 15 minutes and provides additional insight that will serve good for the kiddos in your group, this along... More

The park service has done a great number with this park. There are so many events, battles, and miles to cover in Richmond and the park was able to make a map and list of the most important ones. The driving tour takes you through the Seven Days campaign and Cold Harbor. It can be hard to wrap your mind... More

Not as impressive as the new Gettysburgh museum, but a reasonable job of telling the civil war story from all sides.

I visit the many battlefield sites preserved by the National Park Service in the Richmond, Va area often. This is the 150th anniversary year of the apex of the Civil War fighting to take Richmond. The NPS does a wonderful job, not only of participating in the preservation of this sacred ground, but of interpreting those events in a way... More

This is one of the most comprehensive museums to the Civil War. Two staff are there to help you find victims killed in the war on the national register. There is 'sound' along with the displays and video is excellent
