If you love your history, this is a must see. Very informative and fact filled staff. The drive through the battleground was breathtaking. There is an audio tour on the drive easily accessible on your cell phone.

$15 entry fee per car could also be used at Pea Ridge. Interpretation was not only about the battle, but also about how it affected the lives of the surrounding landowners.

Wilson's Creek National Battlefield is a small museum with a lot of information! We liked that we could take as little or as long as we wanted! The information in the museum was about the whole era of that time! There was lots of interactive...More
