Pretty good museum

This is a good museum for a town the size of Fredericksburg. I would have preferred more pre-founding to pre-Revolution material with more personal anecdotes from the time period... read more

Had a great time learning more about the history of Fredericksburg. Quite extensive and will easily fill up a morning or afternoon, especially if it's raining.

CLOSED - there is a sign on the door that says it is closed and then we opened the door and the lady inside said they were closed due to lack of funding and they didn't know when they would reopen. But, amazingly, they did have enough money to keep the air conditioning going strong.

your general local museum in very historical area. many civil war items, George Washington tributes, sadly not much attention paid to the original settlers and almost no natural history

Great place to see and learn about the history of Fredericksburg. Professional in look and feel. Like a much larger, big city Museum. Enjoyed my visit.

This is a good museum for a town the size of Fredericksburg. I would have preferred more pre-founding to pre-Revolution material with more personal anecdotes from the time period, but it was decent. Don't forget to go to the building across the street that's part of the museum, too. It was very interesting and included more of the early time... More

Hi WhiO5214, Thank you so much for your review! Your comments mean a great deal to us. We are always expanding our collection and seeking objects that tell the complete story of Fredericksburg and the Rappahannock Region. We also endeavor to have programs and events that tell those individual stories that we can’t fit on our exhibit walls. We invite... More

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.

We bought a Timeless Ticket at the visitors center and the museum was on the to do list. Well let me just say we spent 3 hours touring the Museum which is made up of 2 buildings. The Museum was filled with area history of all types from what the women wore back in the day, thru area battles, to... More
