About Museum of the Confederacy

The Museum of the Confederacy chronicles the history of the seceded states under the Confederate government and tells the story of the Confederate army during the Civil War.

From photographs and manuscripts to items belonging to Robert E. Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson and other artefacts, the Museum of the Confederacy offers a comprehensive insight into life in the Confederate States.

Beyond its three levels of galleries, the Museum of the Confederacy also has one exhibit of special interest - the original White House of the Confederacy. The official seat of President Jefferson Davis during the Confederacy, this neoclassical building, which forms part of the museum complex, has been restored and can be toured.
