This museum is really impressive in its collection of Civil War artifacts, including extensive collection of battle flags, displays of medical supplies, cannons, sabers, uniforms and so many interesting personal items. The displays are separate for the Confederacy and the Union, which highlights their stark differences. The Victorian Dress collection is outstanding, too. Male or female, young or old, will... More

Let the back office thank you for visiting with us. I will check to see what might have been happening that was a cause for the unwelcome response. We hope you will come again and know that you are always welcome. More

I took my girls(ages 11 and 9) to this museum yesterday to reinforce the history curriculum this year. They were excited about the scavenger hunt and took their time and worked together to get all the answers. It's the perfect museum to get some perspective on the reality of war and civil war artifacts.

We found the displays and information presented in the Texas Civil War Museum simply wonderful! Displays on weapons, musical instruments (loved the bugle and drum sound tracks), medical displays, and don't miss the ball gowns. They have an activity to involve children so they'll have a good time too. The video presentation added so much to our visit. The staff... More

This museum has nice collections of clothing, firearms,flags and other artifacts from the civil war era. I learned of 2 battles the union armies lost in Texas. The Victorian clothing display seemed out of place.

All the weapons used by both sides, where they came from, how they were acquired and the facts about each one are right here. Stuffed full of artifacts and history. Comparisons and historical facts are presented. Both sides are equally covered. It should be a must for area college students. It might be the most informative Civil War museum anywhere.... More

The introductory videos you are shown are definitely from a southern point of view. Larger than we expected with many display items. We really liked the victorian dress part of the museum. Over all it took about an hour or a little more to tour. It was through the week and not busy so we were fighting to see exhibits.... More

Glad you were able to visit us. As you saw, the museum galleries covers both North and South from all areas. You are indeed correct that the movie is from the Southern point of view because it is about Texas and her role in the war--and Texas was a Confederate state. It is presented as Texas was 150 years ago.... More
