Nice Little Museum in Manassas VA

The Manassas Museum is free of charge now. The Museum is a wonderful place to step back in time. The Gift Shop was excellent with a lot of great gifts.

If you find yourself in the Manassas Old Town area or if you are a civil war buff, put a stop on the Manassas Museum on your list. They have very interesting artifacts so you can see life back when. Don't miss the opportunity to browse through the gift shop that offers a nice selection of interesting and unique gifts.... More

The museum at Manassas National Battlefield Park isn't the only Civil War museum in the neighborhood. Take time to investigate the Manassas Museum at 9101 Prince William Street in nearby Manassas, Virginia. Opened in 1991, it is a beautiful 7,000-square-foot building that sits on eight acres of manicured grass and trees. In it, visitors are privy to the region's storied... More

small museum but really neat. Often has civil war encampments (check for dates), has a great local gift shop with VA souvenirs and Manassas souvenirs.

It was a really nice museum on the history of Manassas through the centuries. The staff was very helpful with guiding us to other spots in Manassas. The museum showed the history not just from the Civil War but from earlier as well as later which was really cool to see.

A small museum with a lot of history is what you will get from visiting here. I gave it 5 stars for the information value that it provided. You can literally spend a day reading and taking in what the museum is showing. A lot of information regarding the Civil War.

The Manassas Museum is all apart of the History of Virgina and Manassas. The battle's here changed the History of the South and if not for the heat could have changed this country for ever. Enjoy this site but visit Manassas Battlefield Park and relive the History

Manassas Old Town is an absolute gem, apart altogether from the area's civil War connections. Deserves greater recognition as a tourist center. The city/town is charming and friendly; a real delight, complete with Farmers' market and train running thru the town center. The Museum is a great example of a small city/town museum and is a must-visit. But there is... More
