Young children are likely to get bored at this museum. Everything is inside glass displays with TONS of reading. Picture after picture of Civil War era.

This is a collection that has been accumulated by one man! And it is incredible. Well worth the price of admission. Allocate at least an hour or more to see this museum and to walk the battlefield. Museum is in the middle of the battlefield.

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.
