Several branches scattered throughout the city. Once you get to the one at Tredegar, get a map and you can visit the remaining ones. Some may still not be open for the season so check first.

I always like to visit the Ranger Station first, but this battlefield doesn’t really have one. If you’re looking for a stamp for your parks passport, go to The Tredegar Civil War Museum gift shop counter.

This is a National Park site. It is free and excellent. Don’t get confused by the “American Civil War Museum” next door, which costs 12 bucks and is decidedly flawed and factually deficient. Here at the modest National Park site, you can view excellent artifacts...More

We spend the afternoon traveling along the roads around Richmond. The weather was sunny and warm and there were few people visiting the sites. It helped one understand the magnitude of the battles.

Nice displays and exhibits. Well done tying in the history of the iron works and the local history. Lots of buildings to explore if you pay for entrance to that area.

This is an excellent place to visit - though there is a fair bit of driving to see all of the sites. As ever the Park Rangers are really welcoming and incredibly well informed. There is a good film to set the scene before venturing...More

This was another Great American War battlefield. There are many in the local area and this one was full of monuments and placards with descriptions of what happened here. I would recommend to those interested in history.
