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

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
