Creating a New Museum Along the River

The merger of the American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar and the Museum of the Confederacy more than a year ago isn’t exactly old news. But the new American Civil War Museum’s (ACWM) vision for its riverfront property at Tredegar is an exciting story.

Plans call for the opening of a major new museum on the Tredegar site – along with a robust education center and outside exhibits – in the spring of 2017. Our team is working with the ACWM management this spring on anchoring the new institution’s long-term vision with a clear, shorter-term operational plan. Three campuses, two collections and a huge amount of new, heavy lifting make the case for alignment and collaboration.
