As a person who lives in Fairfax City, I was happy to entertain out of town guests by using this museum and its associated walking tour of Fairfax.
While the museum is not large, its displays are interesting. When the History Channel tells the story of Mosby's raiders, they typcally visit this museum to get the story.
While I know the story of Mosby well, I did not know about Antonia Ford, a Fairfax woman who withstood charges as a spy. This museum brought her story alive.
If you choose to go on the self-guided walking tour, do stop in at the Ford House. While it is in use as a law office, they have a nice collection of photos and allow the general public in to enjoy the home and its collection.
