The Museum And White House Of The Confederacy - Review
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.

The Museum And White House Of The Confederacy, Richmond Reviews
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.
Very reasonable price, well maintained, and very good tour of the White House. I wish it was a little bigger, but it's very informative and well researched. The parking is a little hard for out of towners. Thankfully someone led us through getting your parking pass validated so it's free. (Just take your parking ticket with you into the hospital and have them validate it and they will direct you to the museum.
Visited the White House of the Confederacy with Quoit Club last week. We took an abbreviated but very informative tour of the downstairs area. Both guides working did a fantastic job. Weather was muggy but the house was air conditioned thankfully. Will definitely be back for a visit for a full tour and to go through the Museum.
Very enlightening tour of a fabulous time in history. The museum was very inspiring. The tour guide for the White House of the Confederacy was interesting and informative. It's a shame that so many people live in the past without learning from our mistakes.
We only toured the museum, will have to see the white house next trip. Museum has some amazing artifacts, actual bona fide items from the time. The massive oil painting of the two Confederates meeting (I won't say which two) is impressive. Lighting was challenging in some displays, but they're moving the museum down near the Tredegar after the end of September 2018. That's a new building so should improve the displays. They have way more than this location can display. Look forward to seeing more at the new location.
