After our guided walking tour, our guide suggested we go to the museum and I am glad he did. The museum was well done and had many floor to explore and once you're finished you can go over to the cultural center and check out their exhibits. Well worth the visit!

Museum is in two buildings, and you can start at either one. One is more colonial and revolutionary war. The other is more civil war and contemporary. Prices are $7 and lower depending what discounts you get. Students are $2. Good overview with Masonic displays from Washington's time, lots of civil war memorabilia, colonial furniture--something for everyone. My wife and... More

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've lived here 6 years now & have been meaning to get to this museum, which was renovated around the time we moved here. We went a few weeks ago & were amazed at the depth & quality of the collection. There are exhibits & artifacts back to the founding of Virginia & the Native American culture before that. I'm... More

We were interested in civil war so this museum was good for us. The furl owe in USA was on so it made up for not going to battlefield tours

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.

The museum is located in the Old Town Hall and Market House, originally built in 1816. Fredericksburg's rich past is presented in six permanent exhibit galleries covering... More
