    Thumbs up Previews.

    I like the ones that let you preview the exhibits online. That way to have some idea of what to expect.

    You asked for biggest and best - there just aren't too many large museums dedicated to the Civil War, and most of them got mentioned within this thread. Now if you want to narrow it down to small museums and museum that have Civil War exhibits, than you could fill a few threads.

    Didn't you specifically ask for big large ACW museums? Or should we interpret what you were asking?

    Does anyone know if the CSA museum in New Orleans is back up and running?

    If you dig Confederate-made firearms, then stop by the Greensboro Historical Museum in Greensboro NC, they have an amazing collection. And if you have any interest in Rev War history, then stop by the Guilford Courthouse NMP just a couple of miles down the road.
