“Excellent museum, loud staff member”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I was so excited to see this museum with my husband and visiting parents, and while the museum is excellently researched and laid out, the staff member working that day was rude, loud, and bothersome. She really put a damper on our visit, speaking so loudly it was hard to concentrate and read the literature. I want to recommend this museum because it is interesting and involves a critical time period in American history that seems to get downplayed, but I struggle with that because of the woman who works there. Go, but be warned.

“Very small in size but very big on information.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

We almost passed this place by because of the $5.00 entrance fee.

The place is authentic and it is small but it is very well done.

Glad we spent the time there.

“Well done but very small”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

We took the quick tour of Washington's Office yesterday and it was very well done. The entire museum is just two small rooms so plan to spend 30 minutes at most. We read everything and we were done in about 20. The exhibits they had were very well done and informative though. It was a great, quick stop and I recommend it to see another side of Washington we don't hear too much about!

“OK Tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We arrived at this location with high hopes. It is a very small structure and doesn't take long to see. The attendant was very talkative, almost to the point of being distractive, so we opted for the self guided tour. There were some interesting tidbits of information about Washington, but all in all, this was not the caliber of tour we were expecting. This will only take an hour at best. Although it was cool to be in a structure George Washington used, I wish we had toured one of the other museums instead.

“A bit of Pittsburgh :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

We learned a great deal about George Washington from the docent. He was quite informative. He shared personal stories which made the tour all the more enjoyable. When we mentioned that we were from Pittsburgh, he shared a few personal accounts. I so enjoy hearing such stories :)
