Very small museum, with gift shop. Excellent civil war era information, laid out in time sequence. Interesting! You probably won't need more than an hour unless you are seriously into the Civil War!

I had lived in Manassas growing up and go back to reunions. This museum was small enough to enjoy and gave a very flowing history of the town.
