There is a Visitor Center at the Tredegar Iron Works site operated by the NPS.

A good compromise might be to leave the White House of the Confederacy where it is -- primarily for historical purposes -- and provide better parking, but move the Museum of the Confederacy to a different, more accessible location in the city. 

Museum admissions might increase at a new location, and tourists can be directed separately to the White House.  Location of the current Museum building could become parking for White House visitors.

Basically, the location of the White House is historically important and worth protecting and preserving on site, but the Museum can really be anywhere -- it's currently housed in a modern building.  What's he difference if it moves to another modern building in a better location?
