What You'll Get
Handwritten letters, like Presidential handshakes and day-old bagels, turn into relics of history when held onto for an extended period of time. Take a historical journey with today’s Groupon for a one-year membership to The Museum of the Confederacy. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a one-year individual regional membership (a $50 value).
- For $30, you get a one-year family regional membership, good for two adults and children under the age of 17 (a $60 value).
The Museum of the Confederacy introduces guests to an expansive collection of artifacts, manuscripts, and photographs scattered throughout the historic building's three floors. Kids and grown-up kids alike can explore the regularly changing current exhibitions, including a chronological examination of the history of the Confederacy from its formation to the surrender at Appomattox. The collection also showcases artifacts such as Confederate uniforms, Civil War firearms, and a letter from Pope Pius IX to Jefferson Davis expressing concerns about the colonies' nonsymmetrical borders.
Along with unlimited free admission to the collection and the Confederate White House, members receive a 10% discount on all purchases and friendships made in the Haverstack Store. Membership grants access to members-only events, an exclusive section of the museum's website, and research services at the Eleanor S. Brockenbrough Library.

About The American Civil War Museum
With three Museum sites in Central Virginia, the American Civil War Museum acts as a constant reminder that Civil War history remains relevant in this day and age.
White House and Museum of the Confederacy
Guided tours of Jefferson Davis' restored executive mansion explore the stories of people who lived and worked in the home. Meanwhile, right next door, three floors of museum galleries showcase Civil War artifacts, documents, and photographs.
Acting as Richmond's gateway to the Civil War, Historic Tredgar's signature exhibit "In the Cause of Liberty" examines the war from all sides, including both the Union and Confederate as well as the African Americans' perspectives.
Located about a mile from the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park, this museum is the home of Robert E. Lee's coat and sword along with various interactive stations that tell stories of the war, focusing on the “Appomattox Moment.”
