The information presented in this museum is one of the best. This small facility has some of the most advanced presentation technology for the exhibition area. They have the artifacts catalogued and numbered so you can search on a centrally located tablet for descriptions and history,as well as thumbprints of the items. The drawers of catalogued items are easily opened... More

On the 4th of July weekend, there was a special tour of Washington's Headquarters and what a special treat it was. As a local I was pleased to see such a great turnout as it seems so many worry about the neighborhood. Come & enjoy this wonderful place especially since there is so much to see in the redesigned museum.

This tour was very interesting, and I would have enjoyed it more if I wasn't concerned that my parked car might get vandalized or stolen! Historic site has a fence around it, while neglected and vacant buildings surround it. The main parking lot was empty safe for two people apparently working on a car. Signs warned about leaving your car,... More

A step back in the history of the Hudson Valley and the role it played in our national history from the very beginning. Best to come when there are special events on a Spring or Fall weekend - or 4th of July !

Even though we didn't plan on coming here, we saw signs for this from Highway 9 and decided to stop in. The neighborhood we had to drive through looked like what I would imagine the neighborhoods in Baltimore look like that have recently had riots. Though even though there was only two of us women in the car I didn't... More

It's like taking a walk back in time. This is a time specific, well narrarated Guided tour by employees wearing period garb whom escort you through the home and Headquarters of George Washington during the decade he was stationed in Newburgh. It's a flash back into Newburgh's History also.

A small estate overlooking the Hudson River in the inner-city of Newburgh, N.Y. holds quite a surprise. When I visited Washington's Headquarters, a colonial-era dressed guide did a great job making her tour current; you walk thru the original house that was "lent" to the general in the Revolutionary War period, when George Washington had the responsibility of planning the...

Extremely well preserved early Dutch colonial style building that served as General George Washington's Revolutionary War headquarters for an 18 month period in the early 1880's. The approximately 1 to 1.5 acre site overlooks the Hudson River and is also home to an early 1900's victory Memorial as well as a 1900 era building that currently serves as the museum... More
