The tavern and the history of the area are so incorporated into the building, the history, and the surrounding interplay within the town and the Revolutionary era
The tours are very inexpensive and the staff is polite and knowledgeable about the history. They have many rooms set up how they would have been back in the colonial time period. Great Stop!
What a nice little tour! We were the only two people for the early morning tour but we found the guide and the young desk lady to be very personable and friendly.The guide gave us a great recommmendation for a lunch spot also
It's small, it's fast, it's cheap -- and George Washington celebrated his birthday there! If you like American history and have a good imagination, then you will probably enjoy this little museum.
Love the history of this town and Gadsby's seemed to fit "the story" of "Old Alexandria". A lot to see and a lot of stairs to climb, but worth it. Our guide was great and our evening "ghost tour" brought us back to Gadsby's for even more history/stories.
Had a lovely tour of this tavern...lots of interesting information. Tour guide was a wonderful older gentleman who was very funny. Especially loved the two "ballrooms"...and the presidential history! A must visit! Next time I hope to eat at the Tavern (it was closed during the hours I visited).
This tavern, which I wish we had had time to eat at was a wonderful glimpse into Colonial life. In addition it was a site for early social events for Presidents Washington, Jefferson, and Madison. Jefferson's inaugral dance was held here, for instance. Another aspect that added to this building is that it is still used for community dances and... More
We enjoyed going to this museum. Only three of the rooms are furnished, the rest are empty. It is quite small, so I don't think I would make a separate trip just for this. However, it was nice to go to the museum and then follow that with a trip to the tavern for lunch.
Interesting building and guide made me aware of the history that took place on these streets. Starting with George Washington. The guide showed us a glimpse into early american experience. Enjoyable tour
