American Civil War Museum

On one of our daily guided tours, visitors will learn about this National Historic Landmark that was the executive mansion for Jefferson Davis, his wife and children from August of 1861 until April of 1865. Robert E. Lee was a frequent visitor to the mansion, and Abraham Lincoln made a brief visit after the fall of Richmond. This elegant antebellum house has been carefully restored to its wartime appearance, featuring all period artifacts. Tours leave regularly throughout the day from the museum's lobby next door. The Museum has three floors of galleries containing an amazing collection of artifacts, photographs, and documents from the Civil War. 

Admission Fee: $10-$15 for adults, $8-$13 for seniors, $6-$8 for youth age 6-17, free for children under 6.
