Visited Pea Ridge for only about two hours, but really enjoyed the history. The Park Ranger on duty in the visitors center was very helpful. The inside museum was well organized and very informative. The self drive tour around the battle areas was also layed out well and the views are terrific.
Start your visit in the Visitors Center. It has a 25-minute movie, which is very well-done, and then an excellent museum which really helps to explain the battle and its setting in Arkansas. We really enjoyed the exhibits and displays. We then drove the loop and stopped at each overlook and stop. Very interesting. We spent a total of almost... 更多
The Pea Ridge Battle from 1862 is very well presented and understandable as shown in the park museum. The troop movements are very well shown with two 3D layouts which show the sequence of movements of the troops from both armies. There is also a very good 30 minute film. The park is spacious and has very pleasant scenery and... 更多
The visitors' center is well-staffed, well-organized and informative. The drive around the battlefield is interesting and educational. Beautiful scenery, as well.

The information center was well worth the time spent. They had a movie, geographic models that a screen explaining the... 更多
We enjoy seeing Civil War battlefields and really enjoyed this one! We started in the visitor center with a movie which explains the war and it's part in the Civil War, then did the driving tour. It starts with a spot that was part of the Trail of Tears and this added to the experience. The driving tour covers a... 更多

You also get to learn about other historic events that took place on the property, like... 更多
