We happened upon this small, unassuming museum while walking around Winchester one afternoon. This is the small office space that George Washington used as a young man while working as a surveyor. The small museum has quite a bit of information on life in the area and the interaction with native american people as well. Worth a look. Nice area... More

This is a very small 3 room office. The actual office is only the one middle room. It has good historical information. Its a nice add on for a historical tour of Winchester. Its a short, self-guided tour. There is an introduction by the staff member at the beginning. It doesn't take more than 15-20 minutes if you take your... More

Its nice, but very small. Not something id do by itself, but if your already in town-center, say doing the mall, then why not stop?

It was very small. I wasn't aware of the time it opened and showed up early and the staff was very rude. Not worth the time.

This is small and only takes about 10 - 15 minutes to look over. It's interesting self-guided tour. It has a couple of parking spaces in front reserved for museum visitors only which makes it a little more convenient to visit.

Washington started off as a surveyor. Surveying was an important step in settling America and historically significant. If you are in town for more than two days, then add this to your list. For as small as it is, the admission fee is a little steep. Some in our group chose to walk on. The small garden is attractive.

Imagine being in George Washinton's actual surveying office! It's easily accessible on a downtown Winchester corner, with Washington's actual artifacts in it! Worth stopping to see, as he surveyed most of downtown Winchester.

Washington's office is an interesting and worthwhile piece of George Washington's early career. We enjoyed the opportunity to visit a location which Washington used during the French & Indian War. The gentleman who was the volunteer guide was very entertaining and he provided stories of Washington's activities in the region, as well as some of the Civil War history of... More
