It is a self guided tour that you drive through. I really wasn't sure what to expect but to be honest there isn't much too see while you drive on the tour. There are several markers to stop at but nothing is there to see. The only building is a recreated Tavern. The historical significance is very interesting but from... More

The farthest site to the west of the civil war battles. Great video which explains the history and there is a drive (7miles) through the highlighted spots of the battle.

This is a small battlefield and you can do this trip in a couple of hours or as quickly as 30 minutes. The museum does a really comprehensive job of explaining the battle and then you can drive to all the key locations of the battle. The park is beautifully maintained.

Became aware of this site while traveling through Missouri made a change of itinerary and very glad we did. Spent a pleasant afternoon learning about this battle and the civil war. The area was beautiful and green. Worth the time and fees.

I had stumbled on this park on a solo trip one fall and was pleased that, during a summer trip with my nephew, he was interested in going here. There's an interesting video in the visitor's center and the trip around the park (guided via an internet program) is moving and informative. Very enjoyable couple of hours.

This is a civil war site that does not require you be a "civil war fan" or expert to understand what happened here. The small museum has some great displays and a short introduction movie. Doing the driving tour which has great views.

Recently had a family reunion and and took a relative Nice place learned some things. Loved the self pace car tour. The only thing that would make to five stars is if they had a radio station or cd that you and use to talk you thru the tour in your car.

This was great. The museum,movie and driving tour were great. Takes about 2-3 hours to complete. The staff is outstanding and very helpful. The movie was very thorough. Do the movie before the driving tour.

It's a seven mile drive thru the park with eight stops for points of interest. The visitor center also had displays plus a short film about the park.

Have driven by and gone in the office during previous trips but never toured the grounds. We really enjoyed the whole driving tour and history around. The exhibit inside are not immense but the video about the area and battles was very informative.
