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.

A very well maintained and historically significant site. Not only for civil war enthusiasts but also for fact that the Trail of Tears ran through the site. It ws the site of one of the most important battles of the civil war and the Park Dept. has done a great job in saving it from development.

Have visited several times. Park is extremely well maintained and very family friendly. The road through the park is 6.2 miles around with the majority of the traffic one way. It is a great place for cycling and walking as there is minimal auto traffic. Visitors center does a great job describing the history of the park and its significance... More

As a park this is a nice place for nice place to spend the day, but as a war museum is a little thin. The have amazing fencers though very diligent.

Lots of Civil War history here and also remnants of the Trail of Tears. You can still see depressions in the ground where the Native Americans traveled.

An absolutely beautiful drive to get there. Once there, the museum is interesting and informative. The drive through the battle field is incredible. There is the original trail of tears that went through there so look for that. A must see for anyone!

After having been to Gettysburg (twice) and Perryville battlefields, I still highly enjoyed visiting the Pea Ridge battlefield. The museum was very well laid out and I highly enjoyed the interactive maps of the two days of battle. The east outlook is the highlight of the battlefield. It was absolutely stunning! We went through the whole museum in 45 minutes... More

I had never heard of the Pea Ridge battle. Surprising, because it was THE pivotal battle that decided Missouri's allegiance. The visitor's center is small, well-arranged, clean, and has a nice museum and auditorium where a film about the Battle of Pea Ridge. Once you take in the museum, dioramas, and the short film, there is a loop to drive... More
