The Museum is open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (with the exception of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day and New Year's Day). We are located in the Courthouse area in the Merchant Square Building across from the Pavilion. Our 1800 sq, foot facility contains the Museum, which houses our County's history, beginning with early Native Americans and continuing on through the Civil War. It is also home to a research library that is open to the general public. Guided tours for groups are available upon request.

This museum is a very nice stop in touring the battle fields in this area. It is not large, but the displays are nicely done and presented. It is worth the stop.

It's free, so that's good. Lacking in artifacts and many many things to read. Too much to read really. Could probably spend a couple hours, but we couldn't get through it all.

This small museum in a small town is a hidden gem: it has interesting artifacts of the local hisotry, and great sources of local genealogy. The librarian was exteremely knowledgeable and helpful, especially about the Germanna history. A visit to this nice facility is free.

We visited here and was a nice relaxing place. Volunteer was helpful and provided additional information. Not all of their products are able to fit in the space, so we did not get to see everything.

Great exhibits of the local area and helpful staff. Easy parking and free. This area got really beaten up during the Civil War, so the exhibits are mostly depressing and certainly remind one of the futility of all the fighting and killing.
