  • Went on this trip with my son's school. Enjoy this tour very well. Our tour guide was Ashley and she kept the kids interested in all that she showed us. My favorite part was the audio in the museum and the artifacts behind glass. To see how life was during the civil war was amazing. I definitely want to return to see the rest of the park.
  • Wonderful tour of this historic battlegrounds! Tour guide was very descriptive and informative. Will definitely come back!
  • Outstanding museum - One of the best museum experiences in the world. The tour through the exhibits is enhanced by an audio experience selected at the start. I wish Smithsonian would take a page from this museum's playbook and stop building their huge edifices that try to satisfy everyone but do little to inform the visitor in a meaningful way. Kudo's to the Pamplin family for creating a national treasure.
  • Very nice facility and well funded, not buisy or manned well on this Sunday afternoon. Mostly geared towards the elementary or middle school class tours during the week.🗿
  • Tons of great information and very interactive. Beautiful grounds for a day learning.
