“Knowledgable but not enthusiastic guide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We had a park ranger guide with our group of ACW tourists. Perhaps it was because of the rain but this guy definitely didn't want to be out in the field with us. He was very knowledgeable but his lack of enthusiasm was distracting from the information.

“Beautiful View and cool history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

When we got there we went to the museum and read all the history about the battlefield. We went on a 45 minute tour but seemed short to me because it was so interesting. After that we went to the second Manassas tour and it was also very interesting and rich with history. The last thing we did was see the the movie they were showing which was awesome. Overall the battlefield was full and rich with history.

“Beautiful Grounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Really liked the lit display that brought the movement of the battle in that area to life. Just lovely grounds that are scenic in every direction. So nice that it has remained that way and you don't feel like there are a million subdivisions right there close.

“Fun for an hour or 2”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I came here by myself and just did the walking tour, you follow the path and there are some plaques describing different views. It is a good part of history and it is neat to see the canons. It seems that there are extensive trails and a fellow in the museum told me that there are 26 miles of trails so if you have a lot of time or are a jogger, it looks like it would be great. However, if you only have an hour or 2 to spend some time there, you can get through and feel like you've seen what you need to. Not much else to do in Manassas so I see why this is the #1 attraction.
