Due to mismanagement of funds by the City Council of Petersburg, the Siege Museum is closed. No idea on when it is to be reopened, currently pursuing a grant from the Federal Government in order to reopen staffed with volunteers.

The Petersburg Siege Museum tells the story of the citizens of Petersburg during the siege of Petersburg during the Civil War. You can't do the Petersburg Museum / Civil War tour without visiting the Siege Museum.
