Excellent storytelling in this musuem. The use of quality acting in the video portions that weave continuity and meaning between the exhibits was our favorite part. Wax figures are employed to set the scenes of impactful moments in history as well as directional sound to immerse the visitor. The best effort I have seen made to portray the thoughts and feelings from both sides of the conflict, and to let the twisting of truth and politics of the day serve as warning to future generations. Representation of both achievement and loss is given. It’s interactive and even taught me things I never remember reading in all the books I have read about the civil war. Using the voucher on my phone from the app at the checkin at the gift shop was very simple and the staff were knowledgeable and friendly.

Very modern, very clean, very nicely laid out. A real hidden treasure! The mannequins were so lifelike that I was initially convinced they were real people. There weren't a lot of interactive exhibits, but our 10 year old still enjoyed it. We all learned more about The Civil War that day.

This museum is a gem in an unexpected place. I enjoyed my visit and have many more pictures. Go, I don’t think you’d regret it.

Civil War Museum with a beautiful view! Displays are well orchestrated with relics and descriptions! This two story building is filled with knowledge from a time gone by. You will leave this museum with a sense that you actually lived during that time. A great experience!

About The National Civil War Museum

People tend to walk slowly through The National Civil War Museum—both out of respect for the fallen soldiers and sheer awe at how much there is to see. The institution strives to cover the events before, during, and after the war without bias to either the Union or Confederate cause.

  • Size: with 21,000 historic documents and 4,400 artifacts rotating in and out of exhibits on two floors, the museum recommends reserving 2 to 4 hours for a visit
  • Eye Catcher: Moment of Mercy—a statue outside the museum that depicts Richard Kirkland, a confederate sergeant who gave water to wounded Union troops
  • Permanent Mainstay: Weapons & Equipment, a collection of rifles and uniforms from both sides of the Mason Dixon
  • Temporary Exhibit: 1864—the first of four special exhibits to cover specific years of the war and part of the museum's lead up to the Civil War's 150th anniversary
  • Don't Miss: a giant, interactive video wall, where President Abraham Lincoln answers questions about anything except his hat
  • Leave Your Mark: descendants of Civil War veterans can purchase memorial bricks that add their relatives' names to the museum's Walk of Valor
