The National Confederate Museum at Elm Springs
2357 Park Plus Dr
Columbia, 38401

The mission of this museum is to provide the public with a Southern perspective of the War Between the States and to educate all generations on the history of the War and its ongoing legacy.

The museum building was designed to resemble a large carriage house, one that might accent the style and age of historic Elm Springs. The interior of the museum features a spacious gift shop and lobby, a research library, and two exhibit halls. The offices of the SCV General Headquarters are located
in this new building. In total, the museum building has 18,500 square feet of usable space with unfinished shell space that can be used for future growth.
