  • We visited here on a Sunday morning and arrived around 10:30 before the visitor's center and museum was open. They open at 11:00. We took a look around at the various markers on the battlefield and th...  read more »
  • Driving or walking the grounds and reading the plaques and observing the cemetery brings grief, but what war isn't sad. This is overwhelming to try to imagine the number of deaths and the details of b...  read more »
  • Great museum and video to the biggest battle in the civil war in Kentucky. Staff was outstanding and the sites around the park are great. Watch for the heat it gets crazy. 
  • This battlefield is a gem! While small, the museum is excellent and worth the cost of admission. The video explains not only the battle but the strategic situation in 1862. The path around the battlefield helps tourists follow the course of the battle. The battlefield is incredible well maintained and very complete, better than some more well know battlefields. This is a "cannot miss" battlefield for those interested in the Civil War. I was truly impressed and cannot recommend it highly enough.
  • Ethereal. Singularly beautiful and tranquil. Impeccably maintained and interpreted and the vast expansion of historically significant park land has resulted in one of the premier Civil War sites in the country. The essence of what transpired here is palpable. Perryville Battlefield is a Kentucky gem and National treasure. One of my favourite places.
  • A solemn space to contemplate the ultimate sacrifice of thousands during the civil war. The open spaces are beautiful and well kept. I've come twice and I'm hoping to return soon.
  • Amazingly well-preserved. There is so much to see here, tons of history. Great picnic spot, as well, with a playground for the kiddos. The Civil War Museum is a must-see.
  • Beautiful area! Love the history and the presentation. The staff are terrific!
