Well organized event between Richmond and Berea, Ky, near... More

The Visitors center shows the history of The Battle of Richmond and it coincides with the Battle of Richmond reactment August 26th-29,2016. You can see how people lived before cell phones and automobiles. There are authentic camps and demonstrations

It's very nice for about an hour visit. It is on actual battle ground and gives a very nice description of the battle. Has a electronic model of the battle and several uniforms and civil war items. Staff is very friendly and the organization is trying hard to add more items and teach history. I would recommend visiting the reenactment... More

This excellent little museum really explains the Battle of Richmond and its impact on Kentucky. The locals have put a lot of love into this place. If you are interested in civil war history it is a must see.

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
