This small museum would be an excellent place to visit before or after visiting g the Manassas National Battlefield and museum. The Manassas Museum completes part of the civil war story, and the years afterward.

It gives a quick view of the history of Manassas. Thru the beginning, then the Civil War and beyond. Tells of the naming of the town, the historical buildings and why/who. The railroad is very important to Manassas and you will learn all about that...More

I think Old Towne Manassas is doing great with develping/ improving the town with keeping old charm. The museum, station, pavilion are the center of activities. Museum's spacey lawn is perfect for everyone and every day.

This is a great little museum to orient one to the history of the Manassas area and Northern Virginia. The exhibit on the Boys and Girls Clubs would have been enhanced by mentioning who the supporters are and how to get involved.
