“Pre- and Post- Civil War History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

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.

“Family visit”

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.

“A Fun Trip to Historic Manassas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

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!

“Kinda boring and I love museums....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

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