Do not go! Waste of time and gas money! Couldn't even go inside! The park outside has one picnic table and nothing else!

This is a small museum with BIG character. On the site of the battle, it was a home used by the military as an HQ and a hospital during some of Kentucky's most intense fighting. The laser highlighted battlefield & accompanying video is definitely a highlight. The staff were very friendly and gave some great insight. If you have an... More

Our "Young at Heart" Church group went here for a bit of history and were very well pleased with the amount and depth of knowledge that was provided by the staff. Definitely worth the visit.

I teach history and I was bored. There isn't a whole lot to see at the battlefield, not much at all. I wouldn't stop again.

I visited this attraction, in December, with a work group. There were, at that time, re-enactors and an interactive model of the fields showning the troop movements in arrow lights.

The visitors center is a building that existed when the battle took place with the fighting occurring around the center. The building appears smaller than what is found at other civil war battle fields but its contents equals most of the others (no wasted space). Nice displays that are within touch (but don't), unlike other museums where the displays are... More

If this had not gotten great reviews, we would not have went in. It seems small and not worth seeing from the outside. The inside was very nice though and the guy running it was very imformative. Without him, it would be just ok.

This area of Kentucky is rich in history and this is one of those must see places to stop. I have never heard of the Battle of Richmond until we visited the town. This was one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War and visiting the battle grounds I can only imagine what it must have been like, or... More
