The museum isn't large so you could probably get through it in under an hour. Would recommend visiting in conjuntion with a trip to the Manassas Battlefield -- helps complete the historical significance the area played in the war.

We were in town for the Civil War weekend which was the best co ordinated program we have attended. They had events in two locations and balls at the train station two nights. Can't be missed!!

Although small, the Manassas Museum has plenty of neat civil war stuff. And several times a year they have civil war reenactors camped around the museum.

This is a very nice and entertaining experience. The Manassas museum complements the National Battlefield Museum and Park.

You can go thru in 15 minutes. It is directly connected to visitors center, and that's the place to start the walking tour of the battlefield
