My husband is a Civil War Buff, so I had to be coaxed to visit. I also had to be dragged out! This is an amazing museum with amazing historians who not only provide amazing historical facts, but if you take the time to "visit a little", will share stories of their ancestors who fought in this destructive war -...

This is the second oldest Museum of the Confederacy, the only one older is in Richmond, VA., The names of past visitors is staggering, as are some of the exhibits. The story of the Confederacy is told here with the emphasis being on Louisiana of course and is well worth a half a da's visit. Small museum but plenty to... More

This is a small venue. A bit larger than a basketball arena. It is well laid out and one can just walk at one's own pace stopping and/or passing whatever one wanted to see or read about. It made the (no so) Civil War come alive. Weapons were in no short supply and it is amazing how the implements for... More

Very large Civil War history museum one of the largest in the country. In an old library building. You will not be disappointed.

Most of the exhibit is artifacts from the war. Could be interesting to people very interested in history, military or civil war. Not suitable for general audience and especially children. Quite small with only a hall and a pathway. Didn't do a good job of telling the story of civil war and putting the artifacts in historical context

This is a "quaint" museum located near the WWII Museum (one street away). It was refreshing to visit especially after touring the WWII Museum the day before and waiting in endless lines. We were some of the first to arrive at the Confederate Museum. I recommend viewing the informative short film before visiting the exhibits. The artifacts and information pertains... More

There are a lot of artifacts, especially from the Confederacy but not as much history- if you know what I mean. It's small and cowers in the shadow of the WWII Museum but worth a visit if you're a Civil War buff, especially a Louisiana area buff.

Always wanted to visit this museum but could never find the time. This year, we started our vacation with the Confederate Civil War Museum. We were there with our two boys and managed to hold their interest for 2.5 hours. There is an 18 minute video which was very informative and tells the stories of some of the artifacts in... More

I was highly impressed with this museum's collection. It holds some fascinating artefacts and beautiful oil portraits of Civil War generals and personalities. It gave a very concise and detailed history of the war. I thoroughly enjoyed this museum.

This is a small museum but if you are going to the WW 2 Museum this is right across the street and it is a nice visit. I think the fee is $10. There is a short video on a TV in the back that is good to watch. It is a really neat building and has tons of historical... More

Staying in Arts District / Warehouse District

Neighbourhood Profile
Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having moved in and set up shop throughout the disused warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much of the art you'll come across here is local in scope, ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and glass housing large-scale cultural institutions of national prominence such as the National World War II Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Just as eye catching as what’s on view inside the galleries and museums is the chance to see your ship come in at the Julia Street Cruise Terminal, which serves as a wistful reminder of the city’s historic maritime prominence.
