Small but quaint museum featuring some great artifacts from Manassas' long history. A capsule of history at your fingertips. Very nice folks running the place. I regularly take family visitors.

Little museums are sometimes the best. You really get a feel for what Manassas was once like! It's fun to walk around and visit the museum and maybe have an ice cream somewhere!

Very small and not very many displays. There should be much more to this museum based on Manassas' rich history.

The museum was nice but small. The gift shop excellent. Manassas is a nice town and needs a bigger museum.

You might think this little museum wasn't much, but it took me two hours to get through the whole thing. There was so much to read and learn. It is well organized and really an excellent place to begin your studies of the Civil War. I'm glad I went there prior to going to the battlefield because I learned so... More
