Bring your students to The National Civil War Museum to enhance their study of the Civil War and its legacy. Your students will learn about the causes of the war, the battles and the people who fought them, and the legacy of the war that still affects us today. They will tour our exhibitions in groups and may participate in a scavenger hunt activity designed to keep them engaged and on-task.

Before we begin our self-guided tour, we will participate in the “THE LIFE OF A SOLDIER” program. Why did Civil War soldiers fight shoulder-to-shoulder? You mean there’s more than one use for a bayonet? How are armies organized? Students will be introduced to the day-to-day life of a soldier accompanied by reproductions of uniforms, equipment, and weapons. This incredibly popular presentation goes beyond traditional Civil War curriculum and prepares students to be more educated viewers in the museum galleries.

STUDENT RULES for the Museum
1. Be considerate of other guests visiting the Museum. No loud talking, running, or jumping.
2. Stay within sight of your chaperone. Please do not wander ahead of or behind your section.
3. Use clipboards for work sheets, but do not lean on walls or exhibit cases to write answers.
4. No food or drinks are allowed in the galleries (including gum!)
5. No cell phones may be used in the galleries.
6. You may take pictures in our galleries, but your camera’s flash must be turned off.

Attached is the Civil War Museum Exhibit Guide for Teachers.
