  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Awesome history! Grounds are well kept and the yearly reenactments are great! Clean picnic areas and shelters. Gift shop on location.
  • Perryville Battlefield may not seem like a lot, but there is a lot of great history here. The small museum center is great! I highly recommend the hiking trails as well
  • A great battlefield preservation effort is underway here. In the last decade numerous improvements have been underway to expand the site and reclaim much of the core battlefield. The rolling hills offer a great vista of the historic area.
