If you love history, you will love this place. We took our grandchildren and they absolutely loved it. The gentleman at the museum advised us to go through the village before it got too hot. So glad we did as it got hot as we were finishing up. The cost is very reasonable and you can use your tickets for... More

I have lived within an one hour of Bardstown Kentucky my entire life. I had no idea that this little Jewel was so close. The price of admission was $10 for 2 museums and for 2 days. Inside the museum you will find many artifacts from the Civil War including cannons uniforms and tons of American flags used on the... More

This is 2nd trip to the museum and I loved it just as much as the first. Some of the memorabilia and artifacts on display are unique and not seen at most museums of this type. The staff is very friendly and it's decently priced. I would highly recommend especially to Civil War buffs.

I stopped by the Civil War Museum and Old Bardstown Village on July 4. The museum has a number of displays to go through and was decently done for a local museum. I wandered around the buildings in Old Bardstown Village, which were open but not staffed. The site is worth stopping by if you're in the area and looking... More

Church group toured the Civil War museum and outdoor village area. This is self guided and has an extremely large collection of artifacts from many battles over a large building. There are many rooms that have displays in time sequence and historical information posted . There were children and elderly adults in this group. All were able to tour the... More

If you are into history this is a place to visit. We enjoyed the museum and would stop again. Wish we had more time to visit the other 2 museums in town.

I'm not a history person but my husband wanted to visit. It was actually a nice museum with lots of information. Ticket purchase was good for 3 museums and a period village replica. If we go back, we'd visit this and the other museums too.

A collection of several museums and a pioneer village. My wife wanted to see the Women in the Civil War exhibit and we were not disappointed. For a fee of $10 each, you get to see all the museums and pioneer village for two days in a row. There is a Civil War museum and a military history museum. Two... More

The best thing about this museum is the artifacts. The displays include lots of historical uniforms, weapons, and every day items of that time period. If you love history, you should visit this museum. Your ticket price includes several museums.

Exhaustive displays of information on the Civil War, as well as a log cabin town of buildings from the 1700 and 1800's, showing how settlers lived back then. Ranked the 4th best war museum in the country, according to the Museum staff. My children enjoyed the log cabin town best.
