Confederate Museum Reviews & Ratings
What an interesting and informative collection of authentic Civil War artifacts! So happy that there is a place like this that respects the value of our history! Instead of tearing down to try to erase the past, this museum is a must see for anyone who wants to learn from our past! Thank you so much for the time and effort put into this important time of American history!
It was great seeing all of the civil war artifacts. But my only complaint was we wasn't allowed to take any pictures. So you better have a good memory if want to remember this encounter for years to come.
Really interesting pieces, including money used during the war... but very small space. Only $5 so worth checking out if you're interested in the war. Also, you can look through their record books to see if a family member was on the confederacy but need name and better if you know which state they were stationed under.
This is a great tour of history. Knowing your history is the best way to keep from repeating our ancestors mistakes. Lots of cool relics are kept here and preserved for generations to see and ponder a time long since past. Its a small museum, but packed with all kinds of historical relics. It's a short visit, but worthwhile to the history buff.
Amazing historical artifacts and books! Well worth the visit. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable
