Hubby and I are Civil War buffs. We’ve been to most of the battlefields in the East, and more museums than I can remember. This museum is a gem! It’s not the biggest I’ve ever been to, but it’s not the smallest, either. And what...More

This was my first visit on a Saturday. There was a ceremony in the morning with Confederate reenactor color guard and bugler. Well done. In the afternoon, a lady made a presentation about CW spies in petticoats. Never realized there were so many on both...More

You visited on a good day. Each summer we have a speaker series on Saturday and throughout the year the 19th century String Band--Buttermilk Junction-- plays in our galleries. Our speakers are excellent--hope you will be able to come again.

Glad your visit was rewarding. It is just hard to wrap my mind around how a nation in all it had in common was so divided for 4 bloody years. Let us hope we never stoop to that level of brutality again. The dresses are...More

We were pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a place. This museum was the real deal, untarnished by bias. No, there is not a battlefield, but much better; large enclosed glass models of fine detailed battles. The facility is shaped like an horseshoe, displaying...More

As a museum for Texans, it is probably excellent. Seen through non-Texan eyes however, it lacks balance, clearly favouring the Confederate side. The direct comparison of equipment (uniform, guns, field furniture etc) on both sides is balanced, and makes it easy to see by what...More

I am so sorry as I did not see the question until now. Allow 2 hours if you have a general interest in the war. If you are really interested in the period allow 4.
