Because, aviously…

The American Civil War Museum is a collection of locations in and around Richmond, Virginia, dating back to the 1800s.

  • Historic Tredegar – An Iron Works facility from the 1800s houses the Civil War Museum as well as a free National Parks Museum for the Richmond National Battlefield
  • The White House – This was the home of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy, and you can take a 45-minute tour (no pictures) showing you the life and times of how the first family lived
  • Museum of the Confederacy – This facility is adjacent to The White House and has the history of the Confederacy housed within
  • Appomattox – One of the final battles of the Civil War (Battle of Appomattox Court House) was fought here, and has the house of Wilmer McLean, where Lee surrendered to Grant

Parking at these locations are free, with validation at the front desk, and the prices range from $8 for Tredegar to $20 for all of them.
