“Very Educational and Interactive Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2010

While spending the day in Old Town Alexandria, we stopped in at this small museum, which is located just a few blocks off King St. The museum is fairly new, and is not well marked outside of the historic building, so be sure not to miss it. They were working on getting a sign up, so that problem should be corrected shortly.

Although this museum is small, we really enjoyed it, and the kids (ages 8-12) really liked it. The Freedom House was a slave trading house at one time, and slaves were held here in the basement. Most of the exhibits are in the basement, and we found them to be very interactive. We really learned alot about slaves and how they were traded, their way of life, and how they were treated.

The museum is free, but depends on and accepts donations to operate. This was a fun and educational experience for all of us, and I would definitely recommend it. Plan on spending about 1-2 hours here.
