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.

Actually, it's a small history museum with lots of interesting period artifacts and memorabilia. Make sure you find the poster advertising for Germans to come settle and how much land they... More

We had always planned to go into this interesting looking building, but we never made the time. We are so glad we did this trip. It has neat exhibits of early Fredericksburg and the pioneers here.
