“A great history lesson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We are new to the area and visited the museum to learn more about the area and its civil war history. It is small but the items they have are in amazing condition. It is very clean and well displayed. There are also many site tours that you can do in the area(plantation, forts, and old school) but the dates and times vary so check with the museum. You will need to purchase a tour ticket at the museum and then drive to the tour sight. The ladies that were staffing the place are their real gems. They were so nice and welcoming.My daughter is 13 and enjoyed it. I don't think a child much younger would. On a side note the Manassas Visitor's Center is across the street in the train depot. We did both in 2 hours. It is also by the historic downtown area where you could stop for a bite of lunch or dinner.

“Manassas Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Manassas Museum is well worth the visit if you enjoy the civil war. For kids younger than 12 they may not enjoy it because there is a lot of reading and original photos to look at.

The museum was created by artifacts the local people donated to it. For me this makes it quite interesting.

It is a small museum so you problely could see it all in 2 hours.

There are some nice restaurants within walking distance. If you eat at Foster' grill and eat outside you can watch the trains pass through Manassas. It is near the train station and within walking distance of the museum. All the shops in Manassas are within walking distance of the museum.

The entrance fee is quite low $5

“History in review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The nice open grounds make this even a nicer place to visit, a time to look back at our history and hope do not make the same mistakes.
See some interesting pictures of old Manassas and area and see some new review of the Civil War. Visit Train station across street as it is offers lots of information on area.
