    Formerly the Soldier’s National Orphanage, the Museum is now home to a number of unique exhibits. This is the natural landing spot for any aficionado looking to glean Civil War facts and browse relics of one our nation’s most defining conflicts.

    At the Soldiers National Museum discover such Civil War artifacts as a battered drum that rolled beneath the roar of many battles and a Yankee Rifle that can be “loaded on Sunday and fired all week!” We also feature artifacts and memorabilia from several other major American conflicts.

    What was it like to be a Confederate soldier? Walk through a full-scale recreation of one of their campsites and see the men washing their clothes, cooking their dinner, playing cards, or just trying to relax in the face of oncoming battle.

    Experience the Civil War in miniature through a beautifully crafted, exquisitely detailed collection of dynamic dioramas that look ready to come to life at any minute.

    Follow every battle, from the first shot fired on Fort Sumter to Appomattox and surrender. Your visit will be a thrilling experience and you’ll leave with a greater appreciation and understanding of the Civil War era, as well as insights, facts, impressions and unforgettable memories.

    Experience the building’s history through a free exhibit telling about the circa 1863 Orphanage that this historic building once hosted.

    Look into the past with an exhibit featuring the authentic wood carvings of Cliff Arquette, better known as Charlie Weaver.
