We visited this National Military Park on May 23rd. There is free parking in front of the visitor center. On the hour and on the half hour there is a 26 minute movie about the battle's around Chattanooga and told by a soldier of both sides. The exhibition is rather small and not very interactive. You can get a map... More

They were a page from one of the fighters journal stating that this battle was one of the bloodiest battles fought. So much to take in. And the museum has oone of the most awesome displays of firearms used in the... More

My wife and I tripped across this park. The park HQ and museum were friendly, informative, and friendly. On Saturday mornings, they do a bike guided tour around parts of the grounds. The park is relatively flat but well spread out so you need to do the bike or driving tour. You can link your phone up to a site... More

This battlefield had a lot of monuments and a great driving tour. The audio tour started in a different direction than the NPS driving tour, so we took that back, but the visit was great and the staff very helpful.

This former Civil War battlefield is now a lovely park that is well worth the visit. Start your visit at the Visitor Center. The museum is sparse, but the 20+ minute video, which they show on a regular schedule, was well done and very informative. It provides excellent context for a tour of the battlefield. Gun enthusiasts will also appreciate... More

I was really surprised at how many monuments were Ohio. It was really fun to see, and they were really nice. My favorites were all the Ohio Cavalry. And the way the put up the monuments, you really see the battle lines. It was awesome!!!

A stop here is a must for any one interested in Civil War or milutary history. Your tour starts at the visitor center, where you can watch an excellent 22 minute film overview of the event. After the movie, enter the museum and check out the 400 gun Fuller collection. Guns from the 1500's to WW I. After doing the... More

We loved our visit here! The park was beautifully kept . It is easy to follow a tour on your phone along with the monuments and stops. Be sure to stop at the visitors museum first and see the short film for a richer experience of the history of the area. This is definitely a must see attraction if you... More

Do some research before going to get the most out of this trip. From Wilder tower to Snodgrass hill there's plenty of history to see and revisit.

So worth it! We took the Incline Railroad up the mountain and walked to the Park, about 10 minutes, beautiful houses and views on the way. Once in the park it was just amazing, the stories, the views, the monuments. A must do for anyone that loves natural views and history of the USA!
