  • Smaller museum but done well. There is a small gift shop. Little pricey (16.00 per person). Worth thr e trip. They will validate your parking.

  • Nicely organized self-guided tour of the Civil War provides and excellent learning experience. Suitable for adults and children. Nice views of the river nearby. Near the Tredegar Iron Works...

  • I was really excited to come here. I left with a lump in my throat and a very heavy heart. We didn't learn all the facts in school. The area of the museum is beautiful. We walked along the river and flew kites in the park! BEAUTIFUL!
  • Very cool experience. Highly recommend checking this out. The experience was amazing. The artifacts and the story attached to some of the items are priceless. I could have spent all day here taking it all in. Definitely plan on 2 hours at least but don't rush through it. Very cool to see pieces and stories from both sides of the war.
