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.

We are new to the area and visited the museum to learn more about the area and its civil war history. It is small but the items they have are in amazing condition. It is very clean and well displayed. There are also many site tours that you can do in the area(plantation, forts, and old school) but the dates... More

The Manassas Museum is well worth the visit if you enjoy the civil war. For kids younger than 12 they may not enjoy it because there is a lot of reading and original photos to look at. The museum was created by artifacts the local people donated to it. For me this makes it quite interesting. It is a small... More

The nice open grounds make this even a nicer place to visit, a time to look back at our history and hope do not make the same mistakes. See some interesting pictures of old Manassas and area and see some new review of the Civil War. Visit Train station across street as it is offers lots of information on area.
