Pricey entrance at $8 each but if you are a War Buff you will get your money's worth. Plus it does help maintain and handle expenses -they are next door to the WWII museum and Ogden Southern Art Museum in an expensive area of town. Much heart and details have gone into their curating: plenty of uniforms and weapons, good... More

When I first tried to visit this place, it was temporarily closed due to an arsenic attack and I was given to understand that this was probably due to ideological objections. I managed to spend an hour or so there a few days later and, having seen the contents, although I would never condone arson or any kind of criminal... More

The museum has an impressive collection of firearms, swords and uniforms, but really doesn't provide much in the way of a story. The museum had the feel of a bunch of families storing historic family relics they didn't want cluttering up their homes.

It is a quaint museum with a long staircase to the front door located on the second floor. There is about fifteen minute video intriducing the visitor to their history and their cherished relics from the Civil War era. Some relics personally belonged to Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee. Southern hospitality is expressed through complimentary small bottles of water... More

When you walk in, you're greeted with a very warm welcome! I didn't know where to start so I just jumped in. There where so many things to go over. I would suggest to watch the movie first and then go back though. Some of the artifacts have correlations to the movie. I had to go back and look at... More

I'm not a big civil-war person, but I was pleasantly surprised. This isn't a big place/museum by any means, but they have a lot of interesting displays (although a little run down). If you have an extra half-hour or so, take a look...

History right out front of you. Why the struggle happened. Original historic pieces with masterful assistance from the staff to explain. A concentration of southern history and charm.

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighborhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
