What is here to do?
We have two buildings. The museum is three floors of artifacts. It is self-guided. The White House of the Confederacy is the restored home of Jefferson Davis. The Davis family lived there during the war. It is only available through a guided tour. Tours of the house are are taken on a regular schedule during each day.
Where does the White House tour start?
Tours for the White House meet at the appropriate time at the front of the lobby by the visitor services desk. The guide will meet the group promptly.
How long will it take?
Do you validate parking?
We do validate parking for the hospital parking deck next door to the museum. Bring in your ticket and we will validate it. The deck does not charge on weekends and most major holidays.
Is there a good place to eat lunch?
Do you have anything of ____________’s?
Visitors frequently want to know if we have anything belonging to their favorite Confederate leader or soldier. The easy ones are: Lee, yes; Jackson, yes; Stuart, yes, and these items are on display. To find out if we have anything belonging to a particular soldier, contact the Museum’s Collections Department at (855) 649-1861, ext 115 or e-mail us. If the object is not on display, you may arrange an appointment to view it.
If I don’t finish can I come back tomorrow?
May I do research in the Library?
The library is open by appointment only. Please see the library page for information on scheduling an appointment.
Can I see something in the collection?
Can we call a cab?
Cab service is not very reliable in Richmond. We have had very little luck getting cabs to come to the museum. The closest place to potentially catch a cab is at the Richmond Marriott at 6th and Broad. This is a fairly short walk from the museum.
