Any history buff, self proclaimed or otherwise will and should not miss on this museum. Housing the largest collection of Confederate artifacts and memorabilia during the years of the Civil War, the exhibits of the museum were in fact, personal belongings of many of the war veterans and Confederacy leaders. The biggest Confederacy museum in all of the United States, the exhibits tell a riveting tale of life during the Civil War through the eyes of the common soldier as well as the top rung leaders, the role of African Americans during the war and weapons used during that time. The adjacent house, the White House of the Confederate States, has home to the President of the CSA Jefferson Davis. The White House has been preserved in all of its entirety complete with the lavish parlour and exquisite dining rooms.

  • It's not easily accessible, but very much worth the trip if you're in Richmond and interested at all in American and Old South history. There are stairs to climb. There is dirt, gravel, construction, and bark mulch to negotiate. And Oh! What a tour! Knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides wend you through the the home of the Davis family until at the end you feel a part of it all.

  • $10 senior/ military entrance, $12 adult is pricey, but we went anyway because it is historic. Go only if you want to spend the money AND, have already gone to the free stuff like the capitol and the Governor's mansion. Tour was well done, 45 minutes.

  • The home has been beautifully restored. The best part was Charlie, our guide, who was deeply knowledgeable and was interesting for every minute of the tour. Definitely a place for history lovers! Just park in the hospital/museum parking garage.

  • If you are touring Richmond you need to make time for the White House of The Confederacy. Charlie gave a very informative tour. Thanks Charlie! We enjoyed it!!!! (Find the parking deck and park there, don't waste time driving around trying to park on the street.)

  • If you're on vacation in Virginia in the Richmond area then this place is a must see. The interior design is just Beautiful!! A walk back in time to a time when Jefferson Davis would have been planning the Southside next move in the Civil War. After the war was over, President Lincoln came here and sat at the desk of Davis and that area is on display to see as well. If you're a history buff as I am, then this place is a must see. Enjoy!!
