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.

  • This House has some great history and the staff has a plethora of knowledge. I highly recommend that if you are in the Richmond Area that you should go here to learn about the history of this House. There is a tour for this house every 45 minutes to an hour. The house is full of history and they have done a great job of maintaining it. Each floor is unique and every room has a good story to go with the history of the house.

  • Well worth the time and effort! Sadly the hospital world closed around such an awesome piece of history! to be as small as this is, I got so much more than I expected. Sadly the museum portion was closed (due to relocating) but the House was worth every moment I spent! Unreal history lessons!

  • If you are visiting the former capital of the Confederacy you have to visit this house. As a person who loves history, whose family fought in it (on the Blue side), and as a person whose mom lives a few hours from the state capital we had to visit it. Nice staff, good exhibits, and, funny enough, not as big as I thought it would be.

  • EXCELLENT TOUR! Our guide was a man named Joseph, who was an INCREDIBLE guide not only for this tour, but also for the local area including food and local attractions. Very thorough in his knowledge and delivery of the content. Couldn't be happier with this experience.

  • What a fantastic Museum. It's a little challenging to find given its proximity to the hospital in the pharmacy, however, the experience was very amazing. The history within Richmond is astounding. To understand history you must understand all of history, not just the point that supports how you feel. History is really about people and how events are changed and cemented into a legacy. I increase my knowledge base and thoroughly enjoyed the museum although the air conditioning was a bit on the fritz. I was glad to learn more about my country's history. America is diverse Sometimes good sometimes bad sometimes together but hopefully more often than not United.
