“Great artifacts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

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 holding up. Anyone interested in Louisiana or civil war history has to stop here.

“Worth seeing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

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 hand, but that's about it. For all these antiques to survive this long is a wonder and wonderful.

“Small but interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

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.
