I reviewed this museum as part of the Pamplin Historical Park of which it is the centerpiece. Its a very modern museum with dioramas and interactive exhibits and you choose a northern or southern soldier to "follow" through the museum, listening to his story. It was well worth the $12 entry fee.
Although there were many elementary school children going through the day we were there, I would think that 5th or 6th graders traveling with families would be the youngest to appreciate the museum itself. The kids were most interested in the outside reconstructions of the battle sites and camps and the reenactments by costumed docents.
