As a museum for Texans, it is probably excellent. Seen through non-Texan eyes however, it lacks balance, clearly favouring the Confederate side. The direct comparison of equipment (uniform, guns, field furniture etc) on both sides is balanced, and makes it easy to see by what...More

Very fair to both sides and not political. Wonderful collections of beautiful dresses worn by women of the era and what was worn under them. And as expected uniforms, gun and beautiful swords and everyday military gear of the era.

Thank you for spending the day with us--you will have to plan to come back and take that same journey with the Union soldiers on exhibit. It changes everything when you put a face and a name to the object.
