Museum Of The Confederacy

Museum Of The Confederacy

The museum complex also includes tours of the official residence of CSA President Jefferson Davis and his family, which give a fascinating glimpse into the social and political lives of the leaders of the Confederacy. The mansion contains over half the original furnishings. The museum also organizes and sponsors a variety of lectures and other special events and programs, inviting visitors to join us in our exploration of American society in the 1800s.

The Museum of the Confederacy’s mission is to serve as the preeminent world center for the display, study, interpretation, commemoration, and preservation of the history and artifacts of the Confederate States of America.

We hope you enjoy our work.
