You could easily spend 2-3 hours viewing the museum (with 40-minute movie), the battlefield, and the Bushong Farm buildings. Also be sure to check out the two overlooks where you get a nice view of the Shenandoah River.

This is a battle I didn't know anything about prior to visiting it. The park is close to 81, so if you are near that area, I recommend stopping. It is 7 dollars to tour the battlefield and ten dollars for the museum and battlefield....More

We were recently in New Market and got a good presentation about the Civil War battle in the area of New Market. So this drive around the historical park was a good addition to the museums we visited.

Stunning views and several paths to walk on. There is also a visitor center that I did not visit today, but have in the past. The homestead is also worth seeing but have toured in the past so today was just walking through the park.

We saw no pets here. Much of the time we spent inside in the museum there so probably not practical coming to the site with your pet.

Sorry. Apparently I did. A vet complained on here about not getting a discount. I thought I responded to him.
