While the museum has interesting information, particularly regarding the participation of VMI cadets in the Battle of New Market, several displays were unfinished. War Between the States art collection is interesting, but much husband, the history buff, says that more authentic artifacts are needed.

You may have learned of the Shenandoah Valley Campaign, but it's the only time I heard of the "Field of Shoes." A must see for historians and tourists.

A private collection which turned into a museum. Not just the Civil War is covered here. Earlier materials from Colonial times and later times are also represented. If everyone in the Civil War got their pictures taken, half of them must be in this museum....More

Very good museum overlooking the battlefield. 45 minute video. Many exhibits in one area were missing, being renovated or replaced or incomplete. Complete walk of the battlefield is easy and covers close to 3 miles. Much of it can be done by car with several...More

Passed this attraction many times on I-81 and finally took the time to stop in. Glad we did. The 45 minute video was very informative and worth the time to watch. Interesting to go in the house and walk around the out buildings. We drove...More

There are 3 motels in the area, I'm sure one of them has a late checkout. New market battlefield museum though is under renovations. It may not be open.
