It's a great learning experience for both young and old. Young people can play in a scavenger hunt in the museum and earn a Jr Ranger's badge and have to take a oath given by a Park Ranger. My 7 year old grandson was excited. Civil War battlefields are always interesting.

We came to see where our ancestor fought, died and was buried. unfortunately, he was in an unmarked grave, but the folks at the visitor's center were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The museum is very nice and the battlefield tour wasn't too long. It's so nice that this part of the battlefield was preserved. We really enjoyed our time here.... More

I moved from NY to Murfreesboro and checked out the Stones River National Battlefield with my friends from back home. We had a great time as the employees were great and informative. It was very educational and worth the visit here in the 'Boro!

I have visited practically all of the battlefields in the mid-Atlantic region and some (Antietam, Manassas, Gettysburg, etc.) many times. I have also hit some of those in the south along the coast. This is one of the few battlefields outside of this narrow corridor I have stopped at. It is very small compared to the big ones referenced above... More

Our visit started in the visitors center where we were greeted by friendly park rangers who provided a map, driving tour, and some basic background. We visited the most significant sites on the battlefield and were able to see everything we wanted to see in one day. A must see for civil war fans.

I love history and the stories that make it up. The Battleground is close to my home and a great place to visit.

The Lantern Tour guided by a Park Ranger helps you understand what the soldiers went through during the Civil War. Walking through the cemetery at night w/lanterns is a very peaceful experience.

Great National Park staff, helpful and friendly. Nicely preserved battlefield easy to walk. The locals were enjoying a sunny, warm Sunday strolling with their dogs. Not as well known as Gettysburg or Shiloh, but well worth a visit.

Nice place to take anyone interested in Civil War history. Can do self guided drive or walk tour. Museum is very hands-ons, educational for children.

The history lives in this battlefield. The reenactments are amazing. They set up camps just as they would in "the day". The interaction is wonderful. It remains very well maintained. The rangers are very helpful and full of interesting information.
