Wish it was bigger.

Everybody we encountered was so informative and helpful. Nicely done but would like a slightly larger space with slightly more displays.

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

This museum is in the center of our town and does a great job of providing a history and an overview of life in a small Virginia town. The artifacts are from local sources and the displays change frequently. The Civil War is a significant part of the history of Manassas and many artifacts are on display. The museum sponsors...

History of Manassas and the people who lived there 100 years ago. Not for Civil War buffs or children but great for anyone who enjoys history. A lot of info packed into a small space.

i managed to see it with a photo history of past and present. a collection of the 100-150 years old images with current images eschewing the changes from the same perspective. Very informative and worth a return.

Virginia is such a historical state, it's hard to go anywhere without bumping into some artifact or museum. we've lived in Manassas for 15 years and it took 13 to go visit the museum because it was just hiding in plain sight. It's a great tribute to the battles fought in the Manassas area. A little small but with so... More
