The museum was very nice. Huge gun display. Convenient tour on your own with calling a number from your cell phone and plugging in the number of the stop you are at then a recording would tell you about the monuments. And it's all free!

This is a great activity to do in cool weather when walking is fun. If you do it in the summer bring shade and drinks, or, take the guided audio tour in your vehicle.

In three hours you could see a few of the main attractions, such as Wilder Tower and Snodgrass hill. The park is about 30 minutes from Chattanooga.
