The small museum with its film and display were interesting. What we really enjoyed was the drive around the periphery of the battleground.

The exhibits explained the significance of the park and who was involved. This civil war site has a movie explaining what happened at Pea Ridge. Definitely a good site to visit.

I'd never been here, nor heard of a Civil War battlefield in Arkansas. Great exhibits really brought the battle to life, both for the soldiers and the locals who lived through the battle. Didn't have time for a drive through the park, but we'll be...More

I continued to learn about the civil war and wondered how such a beautiful place had to be a place of such tragedy. The trails were beautiful. The exhibits were superior. It is too bad so many lost their lives to make this place a...More
