“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We learned a lot about attending church in the time of George Washington, and Robert E. Lee.
The volunteers who we spoke with gave generously of their time and explained details and dates. Not to mention this is FREE folks! The cemetery outside was fascinating as well. I wish the other reviewer explained what he meant by " politically correct, over -the -top -views"
I thought it was well worth seeing and the gift shop was cute, but nothing very special.

Beautiful church with great history. You can take a sit in Washington's pew. Docents provide helpful information.

“More than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Stop in an empty church during the week and have a quiet, relaxing place all your own. They have a quaint gift shop outside the church to buy a memory. The grounds feature very old tombstones. Historic enjoyment within walking distance of small town shopping and restaurants.

“Very cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Christ Church is definitely a must see if you're visiting Alexandria. The grounds are very peaceful and just reading the headstones is an interesting experience. At some point, all of the presidents have attended services here. The people inside are very helpful too!

“A must see in Alexandria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful church and grounds. We lucked out when the custodian let us in after hours when we found the door to the church locked. This custodian was also a member of the church and told us about being a member and showed us George Washington's pew. A must see in Alexandria.
