“Nice museum that can be seen in an hour or two.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

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.

“Way to go manassas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

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.

“Wake Up Call!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

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

“manassas museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

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.

“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.
