There was more to see and experience than expected. The park rangers were very helpful and informative. Much of it is done by traveling in your car to each site and then free tours at that site. If wanting to see it in depth, allow minimum half day, preferably whole day.

great area for people who like american history and the civil war. its not little so prepare to do the auto tour and get out and do a little walking at each stop to get an idea of what happened and where. plan on a good 4-6 hours if your not in any hurry

You purchase the pass at Visitors centers. If your active duty military (and family) the national park pass is free for a year. A great savings! If your over 65 there's a deal for you also. You can drive around and/or walk. The guided tour gives you lots of information. Very good history lesson especially if you aren't from Virginia.

This is a well run and well set up indoor and outdoor exhibit of the battles of Manassas/Bull Run. There is an easy but relatively lengthy walk around the battlefield with cool bits of history and explanatory signs. You can also do a much shorter route on paths that allow shortcuts. The movie inside is very well done, as are... More

As with Antietam, we started our tour in the visitor centre and then did a self drive tour using the NPS map for orientation and got out of the car at each point of interest. Plenty of parking spaces at each site. For me, a story about someone's experience of an event, brings it to life so Spring Hill Farm... More

The museum is... More

We watched the video in the visitors center first, excellent history source to start there. Walked the outside 1 mile trail then caught the tour at the farm. The ranger did a great job excited explaining. He got so excited he actually took us out to the field to show where the 2 "sides" were fighting. Then we drove to... More

We did a quick stop here to see the battlefield starting at the exhibit center. Be sure to check out the whole building. They have a great museum loaded with interesting artifacts & info. The Park Rangers are helpful & there are tours. We decided to walk around the battlefield area by the visitor center. It's hard to imagine what... More

This is the battle that helped define the Civil War. The Union realized that this was not going to be an easy war, Stonewall Jackson achieved hero status and the grueling 4 year conflict had begun. There is a lot to see. We were only able to follow the path of the first battle, because we did not budget enough... More

You can drive the battlefield or walk if you're of a mind too, although it's very large.maps of the battlefield are provided at the visitor's center, along with a few guided tours by rangers...those require some walking also. Interesting.
