This museum hosts an amazing collection of War Between the States artifacts. The docents are knowledgeable and ready to answer questions and converse. There are things here that you will not see anywhere else. My husband and I enjoyed this tour and still talk about it. We are locals and will definitely return. Thank you for the wonderful afternoon and... More

The gracious ladies who gave us a tour of this historic War Between the States site were exceptionally friendly and quite knowledgeable. Do not miss this if you are anywhere in the area. However, as with all venues when touring, be sure to check ahead for current hours of operation. On street parking is plentiful. You will not be disappointed!

A good place to visit if you're a big history buff, otherwise no. Not much here to see. If you are visiting Winchester and want to know about its history, this is a good civil war info center.

Amazing! Our guide was excellent and let us take pictures. He was very knowledgeable, and humorous! He let us go at our own pace (we closed the place on the day we were there!)The history of the house and the passion the our guide had for the house and the respect for General Jackson was experience we will always remember!...

The museum has an impressive collection of artifacts of this famous general. The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to share their knowledge of information. My only knock on my visit is that no pictures are allowed and there is no booklet that contains photo's of all of the main artifacts. The museum contains Jackson's desk, chairs, his wife's piano,...

Stonewall Jackson's headquarters is a must-see attraction as part of your tour of Stonewall's Valley Campaign. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and several of Stonewall's personal items are on display. His campaign desk and chest are especially noteworthy pieces of the collection.

Friendly, knowledgable tour guides told us many little tidbits we wouldn't have known without their tour. It was thorough but we would have liked to peruse the artifacts a little more, but the tour had to move on. It is part of a 3 home collection that one can buy a $10 ticket good for all three. Well worth it!

This was so cool! A lot of history and energy here. The docents were great- knew a lot of history and the house had some really interesting items. Learned a lot!

If you are a Civil War fan - then you should definitely stop here. Although it was only Stonewall's winter HQ - there are many of his personal items there to see. Right along a city street and parking is available. The guide that gave the tour was very informative and pleasant. I combined this house tour with tours of... More
