We were impressed with the quality and presentation of the Manassas Museum’s exhibits, which include interesting artifacts. It’s a small museum, with the permanent exhibit in one rather large room and a special (temporary) exhibit lining a rather long hallway.

Local museum that fovers the locality from pioneer times, through post civil war times. Lots of information on slavery and slave ownong families. Lots of Civil War artifacts. Guns, tools, clothing, period photographs and do uments. Well planed layout and plenty of signage to tell you what you need to know about what you are seeing.

A really good museum. Good video. Interesting docent. Friendly and knowledgeable. Little difficult to find. No parking for RVs and the streets were not designed for fifth wheelers. Not much about the battles themselves.

The film is fantastic but very hard to watch. The grounds are wonderful and the different points are carefully explained and easy to find.

agree with previous posts that, for small museum, very good. friendly, knowledgeable greeter at door and a volunteer in the museum itself answering questions, etc. but traveling exhibit was certainly lacking in actual objects, almost nothing but reading cards. just a walk across street from a very helpful visitors center too.

Good museum for an overview of area history into the early 20th century. Usually one temporary or traveling exhibit on display in addition to the permanent collection.

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!
