You have to go to Verrins Kirche. We were met by a 94 year old historian. He was a hoot !! He was so informative and funny. We both decided he was definitely a highlight of our trip and we so glad we snuck in for a look around.

nice overview and some interesting collections. Check out the secret found by the first letter of a number of street names, it is discussed on a panel to your left after you enter.

Everyone should stop in here when in Fredericksburg. The curators had lots of interesting stories. It was free, but they accept donations.

Great find for history buffs; not your typical tourist trap. The sculptures, dioramas and artifacts were in excellent condition.

Well documented overview of the early history of Fredericksburg. In conjunction with the Pioneer Museum Complex visitors get an excellent representation of the early days of the Fredericksburg area and community.

The relocated church building has a nice expo inside giving some historic perspective to the establishment of the town and its people through the ages. Nicely done...but they need to sort out the difference between Dutch (the Netherlands) and Deutsch and therefor German and Germany. They also have a nice selection of souvenirs.
