Due to mismanagement of funds by the City Council of Petersburg, the Siege Museum is closed. No idea on when it is to be reopened, currently pursuing a grant from the Federal Government in order to reopen staffed with volunteers.

The Siege Museum is currently closed for renovation. Check back often for new Opening Dates. This is a Historical Tour well worth your time. The video is packed with incredible key history information

The Petersburg Siege Museum tells the story of the citizens of Petersburg during the siege of Petersburg during the Civil War. You can't do the Petersburg Museum / Civil War tour without visiting the Siege Museum.

Due to financial mismanagement all museums in Petersburg are closing. This is a shame, as Petersburg could be a historical gem like Williamsburg, with the right management.

This is a nice medium size museum with a lot of local history and focused on the siege of Petersburg during the civil war. Some very nice artifacts.
