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

My little grandson and I recently paid a visit to the Manassas Museum. From the outside it looks very big with a beautiful piece of land surrounding it with a small but fun playground and a large parking lot. Once inside you are greeted by 2 very nice and enthusiastic people who orient you to the Museum. The cost is... More

The museum is a wonderful step back in time with a lot of information to look at, and helpful staff. It is not very large so you will not spend a long time here, but it is a great start before walking throughout Old Town. Plus, there is a lot of event information as well.

lots of Civil War info, small only two rooms. Think of the $5.00 entrance fee as helping to build a bigger museum.

While the museum is small, the staff was informative, and the facility was well kept. The display made the visit worth the visit. They do have rotting exhibits, we just missed one of pictures done by a soldier during the Civil War. Small but adequate gift shop.

This is a very small museum. Although interesting it is way too small to charge admission even though i know its necessary to keep it up. The volunteer staff there is exceptionally nice and the museum and grounds are well kept.

Interesting exhibits and artifacts in a very small museum. There is a 7 minute video that was very informative. They place is clean and well displayed and well kept. But I honestly think we were through it in 1/2 an hour. There is also a small expensive gift shop.
