National Civil War Naval Museum in United States

The USS Water Wich outside the entrance to the museum

History lane My husband and I decided to tour this place and glad we did. So much to see and learn about history that isn't taught in textbooks. We're both history buffs and this fed our soul. .

Good info on history The kids were interested for about 30min. I could have read for hours. I wouldn’t go a long way out of your way but if you are passing closely and at all interested I. Civil war info, it was a good time. .

History trip We went in not knowing what to expect and was so pleasantly surprised with the displays for both Union and Confederate navies. Excellent displays and staff were very nice and informative.

By telling the stories of the navies of the Civil War, we connect people with the past; giving them a better sense of place and time. Located in Columbus, Georgia, the National Civil War Naval Museum overlooks the Chattahoochee River. We house the largest surviving Confederate warship, the CSS Jackson, as well as the wreckage of the CSS Chattahoochee. Other exhibits include a full scale ship replica of the USS Water Witch, a replica of the USS Hartford with its berth deck, ward room and captain’s cabin, an actual cutter or "ship's boat" from the USS Hartford, a full scale replica of the USS Monitor’s famous turret, and an immersive panoramic dockside exhibit recreating Plymouth, North Carolina, complete with an exterior and interior view of the CSS Albemarle. Among our many artifacts, we have the largest collection of Civil War Naval-related flags on display in the country. The collection includes various flags from ships and coastal forts, signal flags and Admirals’ pennants.
