Recent renovations have really been well thought out. A fun place to visit and learn without much effort. Of course the old money is displayed in what was once the bank's vault.

This is a somewhat small museum. It was interesting to view the history of Fredericksburg. It is worth a stop during a walking tour of the town.

We visited this as part of a first Friday art hop. It is worth visiting a very nice collection of history with contemporary art on the third floor. The wine and cheese was for members only and not for all museum guests.
