Truly hallowed grounds. The place where the civil war took a very big turn. The markers are very impressive to look at. One needs to take the time to appreciate and take in this place. I was in awe checking everything out and I am not a huge civil war aficionado.

As I am interested in military history I found this museum and park excellent, loads of exhibits to look at and a guide to show you round the battlefield. Well worth a visit.

As an amateur civil war fanatic, I'm seldom disappointed in the work done by the nps at battlefields. Vicksburg is no exception. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The driving tour is well thought out. If you want understand the siege of Vicksburg, you have to start here.

I have been on many Civil War battlefields and this one is great. The markers are very informative and the Monuments are sometimes heartrending. If you take your time and explore the Park you will use a lot of time but it is well worth it.

Very beautifully done national park. I was very impressed with the 1300 plus monuments and memorials around the park. However my 11 month son was not into it!! He started his nap time about an hour into our driving tour so my hubby and I had to take turns getting out of the car and looking at things. This tour... More

We visited the park as part of our deep South road trip. Firstly excellent value for money. You enter a museum and gift shop which give an over view of the battle site. Following the museum there is a long drive around the park. You can purchase a cd to assist but the park is really well signed with information... More

Visited this battlefield from start to finish. took the car route and stopped at all of the monuments. This is an amazing place for Civil War enthusiasts. A tremendous day trip. The indoor center is also fantastic with all of the movies, demonstrations and books available to customers. Their staff is also friendly and informative. good parking.

The land is very similar to first world war battlefields in France and Belgium, however this one doesnt have the unexplded ordinance. Want to see craters? Forgot the battle of the Crater, just come here, there's so much more!

A big site and beautiful setting, but compared to Gettysburg not as creatively represented.could do with more displays and perhaps some re enactments.
