This was a nice self paced tour addressing many wars. There are a lot of artifacts and photos to examine. The entrance fee is nominal and is good for a few days so you can go back later. I didn't have time to do the grounds tour but will when we return.

We saw a sign that said get tickets for the museum and battle field here. We stopped and I asked if the battle field tour was included with the museum tickets. The proprietor stated "you are on the battle field". I asked again to make sure and again the proprietor answered rudely "you are on the battle field". So we... More

Greeter, Manager or owner of museum was borderline rude when we walked in. Very negative about the VMI sponsored museum next door. There are typos on labels of exhibits. This is not a civil war based museum. Displays not chronologically organized. Would not come here again.

We were interested in seeing the area. One of the two persons who treated us upon entry, was very gruff. We asked a few questions about the attraction and one of the neighboring battlefields. The explanation we were given definitely had attitude. We were so put off that we turned around and did not stay to view the museum. We... More

The story of the "kids" from VMI fighting here is a strong story. Excellent museum and video. Being a history "buff" I jumped into this place head first and declared it one of the highlights of out trip! Watch the ladies at the farm house cook as they did back then and make you hungry ...... sadly they can not... More

Found this Gem next to I-81. What a great visit. Couldn't stop reading all the artifacts and information. This is a private collection of items from almost every era in human life. There is a lot of emphasis on the Civil War, as the Museum is located on the New Market Battlefield. It was impressive the amount of Civil War... More

I have heard of the New Market Museum for awhile now and, passing through Virginia, had to make the stop. I was not at all disappointed. The museum is amazing. It is not large but is so comprehensive you can easily spend a day there. The exhibits are very carefully and skillfully created and positioned so that one is provided... More
