This is a world class little museum. It's well thought out and beautifully presented. For such a small town, I was surprised to see all the new and creative exhibits that have been installed this year. I did visit last year. The staff are all quite knowledgeable and super friendly. Only $5 for admission and kids under 12 are free and welcomed with a smile! Since I'm a "happy shopper", the gift shop has something for everyone-hooray! I left feeling richer in spirit learning so much about the Era of the Steamboat on the nearby rivers. While it's a small museum, it is full of history. This is a "don't miss" if you are visiting the Northern Neck.

We were recommended to stop by this museum while staying in Irvington. I was not prepared for the education that I was about to receive. Our lovely guide Virginia was a wealth of knowledge and helped us to discover a world on the river we knew nothing about. I won't spoil your visit, so just check it out.

Thank you for your kind review! I agree that the Steamboat Era Museum is well worth a visit, particularly now that the Pilothouse has found a home with us. We hope you will stop by again when you are in town!

This is a small museum that has interesting but limited number of exhibits. The visitor will observe that exhibits are being added; we arrived a half hour before closing but one person stayed to give us a tour. It is worth an hour to stop in.
