My daughter and drove out to visit the Museum and was impressed. It was worth the trip to view so much of the Civil War items.

I couldn't believe how much Civil War artifacts were on display. Surely one of the best Civil War Museums in the country. Plan to spend a couple of hours.

Very interesting! Would go again to make sure I read very section of the museum. Lots of artifacts. They also have worksheets for kids to complete to make it fun for them. They have to find the answers throughout the museum

Good museum. Took two grandsons and they really enjoyed. They gave them a paper to do a scavenger hunt. That made them slow down and really look at exhibits.

Been driving by this place for years and decided to stop in. Very nice museum with uniforms, equipment, guns, medical and cannon stuff. Even a big collection of dresses for the time. Nice gift shop. A good value for the small admission price. 30 minute video included.

I went with my brother when he was in town and was actually very surprised at how great this place was and was very inexpensive. If you are in the area or just looking for something inside to do I say try this out. We are civil war buffs and found this really interesting. Who knew here in fort worth... More

I joined my son and his class on a field trip to this museum. The staff were fantastic and very passionate about history. We were treated to a lecture on uniforms and outfitting for soldiers and it was very interactive and interesting. The collection of women's dresses was amazing.

Start with a video that talks about Texas' part in the Civil War then walk through a large collection of both Union and Confederate weaponry, uniforms, flags, etc.

This seems to be a hidden gem. We had planned to spend an hour here, but there was so much to see that we were there over 2 hours. The film before entering the displays set the tone for the exhibits. They have so many historic artifacts on display that it was hard to take it all in. Very nicely... More
