“Enjoy learning history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The museum is nice and worth a visit but what I really want to compliment are the walking tours and other tours the museum is offering this summer. I have done the city walking tour which details what happened in and around Manassas during the Civil War. It takes about 45 minutes and as a local resident I learned things I didn't know. In addition, I did the tour of Liberia Plantation which is rarely open to the public. I have driven past it so often and never knew it was there, hidden in the trees. Our guide, Paige, did a terrific job and despite the heat, wore her costume. I think the tours are conducted everyday except Monday at 11:00 am this summer. Check it out.

“Short & Sweet”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Cute place, not much to see. Seemed like an odd movement through history the way things were set up.

“Rude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I visited here with a group of senior citizens. Ahead of time I arranged for a guided tour and explained that when travelling with seniors we tend to run late. The guy over the phone was understanding and said it wouldn't be a problem. When we arrived, we were treated poorly and fussed at for our tardiness. I paid for the entire group of about 14 seniors and heard the ladies at the desk talking about our group...wondering if we even bothered to pay. It was rude and absolutely ridiculous. Maybe if you go here, just skip the guided tour. it is a small museum anyway. As for me, not interested in going ever again.

“A Great Civil War Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I attended a lecture at the museum on Mosby's Combat Operations in Fairfax County,Virginia.It was an appropriate setting for a Civil War subject.
The staff was very helpful in the selection of gifts for friends
