  • Four stars if it was busy; it would be hard to see exhibit. Main exhibit doesn't have a lot of space. Lots of uniforms, weapons, documents including letters. Several video screens present sentiments of various people. There was an informative lady at a table between gift shop & exhibit talking about nurses & field hospitals, with props. The museum's focus is on the Confederacy. It was until recently named The Museum of the Confederacy, that name is still on building.
  • Wonderful museum. Highest quality exhibits. Informative and knowledgeable staff. You get a very broad perspective on the civil war and the significance of Appomattox. So many artifacts I can't list them all. Please visit. It's very much worth your time.
  • Awesome staff...amazing design...wished I had more time when I visited. I WILL BE BACK
  • Guides were friendly and provided great information. Displays were good.
  • Well worth as much time as you can devote. Surreal and moving.
