What people are saying?

Surprisingly interesting and even non-partisan in some places. However, as mentioned by another reviewer, the entire slavery aspect is glossed over. But it is good for Northerners to remember that those in the south suffered, even if they were ultimately on the losing side. Worth a visit, but can make a person uncomfortable at times.

Lots of artifacts in a distinctive stone building. A bit too focused on individual soldiers, I'd like to learn a bit more about the causes/development of the civil war.

Fantastic Step Back in Time: If you seek a Civil War museum, remember that this is a Confederate Museum that was built (in 1891) to house the artifacts & documents of the South. It is not supposed to represent a Northern point of view. It is definitely worth a visit.

To those that disliked the cant towards the south i suggest going to museums up north and see history the way they want to see it. You''re in the south this is my history and my heritage LIVE WITH IT
