Junior Ranger Program

A family visit to Appomattox Court House National Historic Park provides kids with a realistic view of an American past unlike anything they are likely to experience in any amusement park. From our museum's fascinating collection of artifacts and Civil War relics to the rolling hills and wide lanes, this park is truly kid-friendly. Be sure to explore the Junior Ranger program for kids 6-13, and the Civil War trading cards for kids of all ages.
