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.

I love going to the Manassas Museum. They have many special events especially for children and families. I like to go to the book talks and signings. I love the interpretaive history demos on the museum lawn. The displays change regularly and there are many great gifts and local resources on sale in the gift shop. A must see for... More

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.

This is a small museum. It has some interesting artifacts but not very interactive. We came with kids and we were ready to leave after about 15 minutes of viewing the exhibits. They enjoyed the gift shop, which had some interesting books and items, and we wound up spending as much time in the gift shop as the museum.

This is a wonderful museum to take in one afternoon. It is a treasure trove of info on the civil war and the Battles of Manassas 1 &2.

This is a small museum which tells the story of Masassas VA. Laid out well with interesting exhibits. We learned quite a bit. The staff members were very helpful - suggesting several restaurants nearby for lunch. The gift shop had some unusual gifts as well. We were glad we spent an hour there.

Manassas is a quiet community with a quaint downtown area and a well placed, very informative Museum that holds some some very interesting installations of historical Civil War era Virginia. It's a must see for any War buffs and a great addition to a day trip to Manassas.
