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

We received our own personal tour from a very nice lady dressed in period costume. She obviously knows quite a bit about Jackson's time in Winchester and the home in which he resided. We were captivated by her narrative and enjoyed this tour very much, coming away having learned more about probably the best known and loved general of the... More

Stonewall Jackson's headquarters while he was in Winchester over the winter of 1861-1862 is a well maintained site and the tour was first class given by a thoroughly knowledgable guide who is completely devoted to her subject. Local history abounds here. Highly recommended.
