Young children are likely to get bored at this museum. Everything is inside glass displays with TONS of reading. Picture after picture of Civil War era.

The museum is good enough, but combine it with the walking tour and it is very sobering - what these soldiers went through.

This place has the most extensive collection of military weaponry and photographs of any we have ever visited. We highly recommend it!

Disappointed to say the least. We were charged full price and 75%of the museum was "missing". They said they were currently making improvements and I understand sometimes this needs to happen, but while you have more than half of your displays removed you should not charge full price to enter. The farm house and barns were also closed for "repairs"... More

As you enter the area the signs says buy your tickets here leading you to believe these are tickets for the battlefield and REAL museum. When we entered my wife asked about the battlefield and the person working said you are on the battlefield. While this may be true, the real tour begins after you leave here. We paid to... More

Visiting the New Market Battlefield and Museum was a very well-done educational experience. Although the battlefield is rather small, it is easy to walk. The museum is very nice with some wonderful exhibits. The staff couldn't be more helpful. It is worth the time and money to spend some time here.

The museum at New Market was very interesting and informative. The best part is the actual battlefield and the houses make sure to go see the houses and walk the wheat fields. The children loved the movie and the displays. Overall a good stop when riding through Virginia.

This is a collection that has been accumulated by one man! And it is incredible. Well worth the price of admission. Allocate at least an hour or more to see this museum and to walk the battlefield. Museum is in the middle of the battlefield.

First see the movie about the battle, the visit the museum and after that go outside with the map you got when you bought your ticket and see the battle grounds. The poles correspond with the numbers on your map and you get a clear view of what happened here.

This museum not only gives an in-depth account of the battle which took place here but does a great job of putting the battle into the context of the whole Civil War. The displays are straightforward and very informative with a lot of excellent imagery. The farm home which was a focal point of the battle happened to be closed... More
