Centennial Village Museum’s Civil War Weekend is Saturday, September 30, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, October 1, noon to 4 p.m.  During the event, Costumed reenactors set their tents up on the southeastern corner of the 8-acre outdoor living history museum and live as they would have during the Civil War.

Both days of the event will include a battle reenactment at noon, complete with guns and cannon. Visitors can also watch marching drills and check out the tent area and cooking station during the museum’s public hours.  The event also features home tours, blacksmithing and print shop demonstrations. Any drill or gun and cannon shot happens just as it would have during the war with one small exception. “These guys use blanks.”


Admission to the museum is $18 for a family of five or $8 per adult, $6 per senior, and $5 per child.
