When I included this in the planning of our trip I thought it would be just about the role Texas played in the Civil Was, but this is not the case. The museum includes a very large selection from both the North and South. I was most impressed by naming the person the uniform and artifacts belonged to. It was... More

We have driven by the museum many, many times but never thought much about it. We finally put it on our list of things to do and were pleasantly surprised at what we found. The place is much bigger than it looks and is full of all kids of civil war era clothing as well as war time items (pistols,... More

Before viewing the artifacts, we entered the theater to watch an introductory video that held our attention and also provided us with helpful information as to how the museum is laid out and how to complete the scavenger hunt. We were there on a Thursday afternoon and practically had the place to ourselves, so it was easy for the three... More

This place holds a special place in my heart. This was one of the last places I got to go with my grandpa to before he passed. It's a pretty sleepy museum, very quiet and not normally busy. The exhibits are put together well and have lots of information about the items you're viewing. There's also a short movie to... More

This is a wonderful gem of a museum with free parking and a ridiculously low admission charge. The parallel confederate and union exhibits was a clever way to compare and contrast the war from both sides. The video shorts playing in each gallery were very in formative. The inclusion of the Texas Daughters of the Confederacy collection adds many additional... More

Enjoyed seeing this museum and the artifacts in it. The museum continually adds more things so it will be improving as time goes on.

This is one of our family's favorite museums! We visit every fall. It is a great museum on the Civil War, displaying the North on one side and the South on the other side. As you walk through the museum, you view the artifacts and read the information about the Union or the Confederate soldiers. A true history museum! Unlike... More

This is an excellent museum to visit for anyone who has an interest in the American Civil War. There is a large collection of rifles/muskets/artillery, thought-provoking displays, and flags. Exhibits cover the Union and Confederate armies, navies, artillery, wartime medicine, and the home-front. The museum deals more with the everyday aspects of life at war, rather than the battles themselves.... More

If you are seeking a high density museum, this is not for you. While they have some interesting items, it would be OK for a brief visit and to get out of the weather.

cindy h, General Manager at Texas Civil War Museum, responded to this review

Sometimes reviews puzzle me--as this one did. We have several thousand items on display at all times and the TCWM is considered to be an artifact-driven museum. We are not a research facility so we do not do any ancestry. Our artifacts are of such a high caliber with provenance on each so we are able to list to whom... More
