  • A very wonderful and enlightening experience. I highly recommend a visit to this museum all ages. Excellent family day.
  • Enjoyed the museum. They have a lot of artifacts from the war that I had always wanted to see. For example, Robert E. Lee's sword, Patrick Cleburne's uniform and the (claimed by R. E. Lee's son) the uniform Lee wore to the surrender. The museum also included letters, artifacts and stories of common Confederate soldiers too. Also, they have unit flags and flag staffs that were surrendered. Student exhibit from VA Tech was thought provoking too. Brought up something I never really thought about, which was former slaves' children after the war. Well worth a visit.
