Visitor Comments- Richmond

The Museum of the Confederacy encourages feedback from visitors and provides multiple ways to facilitate that feedback. We regularly encourage visitors to post about their experience on TripAdvisor, the results of which can be seen on our Connect page. We also have a feedback button at the bottom of every website page where you can leave your thoughts. Perhaps the most-used method of giving feedback is the Museum's guest register, which includes a "comments" column.  Below is some of the feedback we've received in that register as well as the town or city the guest was visiting from:
