I’m Don Burgess, a Frederick resident interested in sharing my passion for heritage tourism and historic preservation as they contribute to preserving and creating a city’s “Sense of Place.” <br><br>I’ve been a history buff of this region for years, and my role on Facebook as Frederick Tour enables me to combine my love of things old with my skills with things new. I’m a semi-professional photographer who has photographed, shown, and sold images of Frederick, Harpers Ferry, and other regions. <br><br>See more details about tour in itinerary below and at fredericktour.org <br><br>We can give tours year round. If it is raining/snowing (light) and you still want to take the tour, we can do that. If it is raining/snowing (hard), we can do a virtual "tour" indoors (groups of 8 or less).<br><br>Upon request, we can offer theme tours such as churches, architecture, or Civil War, or even photo shoots.
$15.00 per adult

A great place to spend a couple hours. This museum was well thought out and put together in a very logical way. We learned a lot about medicine from the 4 years of the civil war. You also follow one soldier in his journey through letters to his family. They were letting people in by appointment only ... so check before just showing up. $19 for 2 was very fair price.

While staying in nearby Herndon, Va we did a day trip to see this museum. It was well worth it. It’s located in a quaint little town. Our tour was self-guided for the most part but a guide takes the elevator to the top with you. After that he gives you information and explains the museum. As you go room to room working your way down to the main floor he was with us in the room to answer questions and some rooms spoke to our group explaining things.

Nice history lesson. Interesting displays. A nice break while browsing through downtown Frederick. Recommend for a cold or rainy day.

We were not expecting two floors filled with information. You start on the second floor where a docent gives you an overview, then wander at your leisure. Some hands on. Lots of info. Well worth the visit.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Though the museum looks small from the outside, we have 8,000 square feet of exhibits on two floors packed with incredible stories and information. Plus we almost always have docents on hand to help with questions in the galleries.

We got there about 20 minutes before closing so we only had to make a donation to take the tour. I was very impressed at how much was preserved from the Civil War. I didn't know anything about Frederick being a hospital for the soldiers during the war. I was amazed at everything!!

We're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your brief visit. 45 minutes to an hour before closing we don't charge full admission since the museum typically takes people around an hour to complete. When you get the chance, come back and see the full museum.
