    Utterly fantastic experience made possible by expert period historians staffing the museum. Every questioned answered completely and with accuracy and sincerity.

    This is an outstanding park and museum complex and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to learn more about the civil war and life of the times. I was surprised that I did not see a sign on I-85 (coming from the south) advertising the center and would not have found it without my GPS; however, I may have just missed seeing it.

    What a wonderful experience! I couldn't have asked for anything better. This was a destination for a trip that my wife planned. She did a great job, finding this place and allowing us to experience the great place of Petersburg, VA!

    Add a star or two!

    This is one of the best museums I've been to in quite a while. I really enjoyed following the career of an individual soldier from enlistment to the end of his career.

    This place really brings to life the life of the common soldier. I do want to go again.
