Civil War Museum information
This smallish space is still more of a collection of ‘things’ as opposed to a contemporary, interpretation-driven educational museum. The permanent exhibition includes the second-largest compilation of Confederate artifacts in the world, although the museum is to be commended for newer and temporary exhibits: the section on the Creole black regiments that fought for the Confederacy (many free blacks in New Orleans owned slaves) is particularly fascinating.
