“Small but informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

Interesting exhibits and artifacts in a very small museum.
There is a 7 minute video that was very informative.
They place is clean and well displayed and well kept. But I honestly think we were through it in 1/2 an hour.
There is also a small expensive gift shop.

“Small museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

This is a small museum. It has some interesting artifacts but not very interactive. We came with kids and we were ready to leave after about 15 minutes of viewing the exhibits. They enjoyed the gift shop, which had some interesting books and items, and we wound up spending as much time in the gift shop as the museum.

“Great museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a wonderful museum to take in one afternoon. It is a treasure trove of info on the civil war and the Battles of Manassas 1 &2.

“Well worth the stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

This is a small museum which tells the story of Masassas VA. Laid out well with interesting exhibits. We learned quite a bit. The staff members were very helpful - suggesting several restaurants nearby for lunch. The gift shop had some unusual gifts as well. We were glad we spent an hour there.

“A local Virginia Civil War Education”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Manassas is a quiet community with a quaint downtown area and a well placed, very informative Museum that holds some some very interesting installations of historical Civil War era Virginia. It's a must see for any War buffs and a great addition to a day trip to Manassas.
