American History is usually my forte. Learning about it in history books and even in historical television reenactments / movies doesn't do too much to explain how it all went down. It was nice to find this museum on a road trip to Richmond, VA. After a search on Google Maps and TripAdvisor, I decided to spend the afternoon along the James River and visit the Richmond National Battlefield Park on a nice Tuesday afternoon.
Well maintained visitor center and exhibits. Surrounding area is also great to take a stroll. Easy access to Belle Isle. Free parking for an hour in the parking lot if validated. Otherwise you can park in the Belle Isle lot which is usually filled up. I'll suggest about two hours to experience this place fully.
