Committed to telling the story of Louisiana during the war and the part taken by her sons
Our Museum is open from Wednesday thru Saturday from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. We are closed for all National Holidays. We are currently closed until Jan 5, 2022 so our volunteers can enjoy the holidays.
The grounds at Camp Moore are open 7 days a week from daylight to dusk for pedestrians. You are welcome to walk the grounds and take our self-guided walking tour. Please respect the grounds and leave them in the same condition you found them.
Camp Moore has some resources for persons wishing information about their ancestor or information about Louisiana during the war. Unfortunately our volunteer staff is not equipped to do research for you, therefore all research at Camp Moore must be done on the site.
We have two major sources of material. First, we have a library consisting of just over 2000 books, all dealing with the war or genealogy. We hope to publish a list of those books on this site shortly.
Secondly, we have an extensive collection of Vertical Files in 4 4-drawer filing cabinets. These files consist of a biographical section in which biographical material on some individuals is available. We also have a section on copies of letters and diaries. Additionally, there is a section on Battlefields of Louisiana as well as National Battlefields. There are also sections devoted to Camp Moore and then a Miscellaneous section that has files alphabetized on many, many topics dealing with the war.
Library Files Under Construction
Research Room visits are free of charge for visitors not wishing to tour the museum.
