If you’re interested in following the life of George Washington then this small historical site, monuments, and museum is a good place to start. It’s located across the street from the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum and just up the street from the Cork Street Tavern and entrance to Old Town.

George Washington used this little log building, now the middle room of the George Washington Office Museum, as a military office from September, 1755, to December, 1756, while Fort Loudoun was being constructed at the north end of Winchester. Washington planned the fort, supervised the work and brought his own blacksmiths from his home at Mount Vernon to do the... More

A tiny little place that describes George Washington's service as an engineer, an oft-neglected aspect of his life. Exhibit was interesting, but not very compelling. The gift shop attendant gave a very nice, memorized introduction. Worth the $5 admission.

Not big, not very much inside, but friendly curator and some interesting items about GW's early years.

Very small museum in downtown Winchester near the pedustern mall. Makes a nice stop if your downtown the $5 admission is a bit steep but you can buy a combo ticket for a better deal. there are a couple of free on street parking spots if you just want to make a quick visit.

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.
