A must visit....for all ages. Important for the understanding of American history.

Step back in time to the period that ended the War Between the States & reunited our nation. A monumental moment in time.

It was so thrilling to drive up to this site that is so historically significant in the history of the United States. All the buildings still look as they must have done at the end of the Civil War. However, I was disappointed that so little had been done to make it accessible for those of us with limited physical... More

What a beautiful location with such great historical significance! The film was informative and very well produced. The grounds were immaculate. The Rangers were helpful and very knowledgeable. I loved seeing the spot where the Civil War, for all intents and purposes, ended. It was an emotional and educational journey. The gift shop was outstanding, the actors were convincing, and... More

If you are a student of the Civil War you know it ended here at Appomattox. The actual ceremony is explained in great detail and how it happened here. Well done and you should stop.

Great park gave me a new understanding of the close of the war. Building and just walking thru the park was good. They had people speaking about the war dressed in period costumes,short informative movie and a smalk museum with facts of the war. I was impressed and recommend this to all

I had visited once, 13 years ago. My boyfriend, who is a big history buff (especially Civil War), wanted to see it while visiting me in Roanoke. So we went to see it earlier this week and it was well-enjoyed. It was really hot (but thankfully they sold bottles of water at the museum store!) but it was still neat... More

We came here at 3pm and wish we could gotten here earlier. The site is up a hill and gets a good breeze so you are comfortable in the shade. The rangers are well informed and eager to teach

I'm a bit of a Civil War buff and couldn't wait to finally visit. What shocked me is that the end of the Civil War was in a private home. Just never occurred to me that Appomattox Court House was a village at one time. LOVED the park and the displays. Don't miss the movie! It was pretty awesome to... More

The NPS has done a wonderful job of restoring/re-creating, etc. to have this little village to walk through. The courthouse and the McLean House are "musts" but we were also able to go to most of the other sites in the village; just a few were "closed" to visitors. The countryside was beautiful. We were on a 9-hour drive home... More

The Appomattox Court House is well worth a visit for anybody interested in American history. It was surreal to stand in the same place where our country was reunited so many years ago. The price is reasonable and the memories will last forever.
