I missed this on my first trip through Winchester, but made sure to catch it on my second. (Having just been through Mount Vernon a few days before, this made a great compliment!) The museum is very small, but so is the building--the whole thing is housed in a few rooms. Interesting exhibits offered a look at George Washington's early... More

Finally after ten years of living in the Winchester area, we visited Washigton's Office! We go to the grounds and the statue often and recently we went inside to find a museum rich in George Washington family history and Winchester Frederick county history!!! Great 30-60 minute tour!

A great piece of history to explore on the outside. See the grounds, the pig, snap a selfie with the young Washington statue and you're done in five minutes. For the major history buff, the cabin inside offers more history, maps, artifacts, and knowledgable historians. Worth the fee for the history enthusiast, skip the inside if history really isn't your... More

Neat old building but the history of whether this was really Washington's office seems a little hazy. Some artifacts to look at but nothing that can be placed in Washington's hands. $5 to take a look.

This was the 3rd part of the 3 house tour. This is a 2 room house with period things from Washington's time there. Also had some interesting things about the fort he surveyed.

A must for anyone interested in the beginning of this country. Amazing at the history of George Washington while he was young and living in Winchester. The docent provided lots of wonderful information that we were unaware of even though we are history buffs. It's small but is packed with artifacts.

If you’re interested in following the life of George Washington then this small historical site, monuments, and museum is a good place to start. It’s located across the street from the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum and just up the street from the Cork Street Tavern and entrance to Old Town.
