Awesome display

Nice video, museum and driving tour. Tavern still standing. Signs give a great picture of what happened.

This was the first of 3 national park sites we would be visiting on our trip and my least favorite of the three! The unusually cold weather in march could have been part of the reason! We browsed through the visitor center exhibits and then took the driving tour through the park. We only got out at the two mountain... More

Not sure what to say other than this is a beautiful place to visit. Lots of info, great "museum". Pretty much like every other military park my boyfriend has chosen to visit. They offer a cellphone tour, that you can dial up for each stop and get info.

Very nice location for such a tragedy in history. Cost $15 per car load to take the tour. 1 person or 10 in car the price is the same. Watched the 30 min. video and then took the driving tour. Had a wonderful time.

Beautiful day to drive through the seven miles of historic markers of the Civil War battlefield and the Trail of Tears. Great place for hikers and bikers to visit and experience history at the same time!

Civil war battleground which is very significant AND great historical references to the Native American history. Trail of Tears and Civil War battle fields intersect here. Free park. Deer and hawks flying around. Only thing is the narrow roads are one way. Awesome park ranger staff.

I was in the area over the weekend and visited Pea Ridge National Military Park. There is a lot of history and some very nice views. The park museum offers background on the park and the Civil War battles fought here. There is video presentation as well. It takes about 30 minutes to drive through the park if you don't... More

We went to this park not knowing what to expect, but this was an awesome park. My husband and I enjoyed the serenity and peacefulness of this park. So much history at each stop. We will most definitely be returning in the spring when everything is green. Well worth the money in our opinion.

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... More
