This is a fun museum. The folks seem like, well, archeologists. They are down to earth and like telling you about what they have found in Alexandria. They have lots of students and volunteers who work there. They also welcome in kid groups for hands on demos. This is a nice place.
Located on the third floor of the Torpedo Art Factory, this museum is definitely worth a stop. Not very large, but does a good job showing the different discoveries that have been made in the town of Alexandria. Some of the displays are interactive and very kid friendly. Staff is wonderful as well and more than helpful.

Located on the 3rd floor of the Torpedo Art Factory. It's really a small exhibit, bit of a stretch to call it a museum. It does have some interesting artifacts from the Civil War era.
Alexandria has been settled for thousands of years, and its archeological history is well documented in this small museum on the top floor of the Torpedo Factory art gallery near the waterfront at the end of King St. It's worth a few minutes up to a half hour, and I believe you will be pleasantly surprised at what you will... 更多
Tucked up on the 3rd floor of the city's Torpedoe Factory on the waterfront, those who love history will be rewarded by the numerous exhibits covering local finds from way before the arrival of the Europeans who set up the Old Dominion. There was a small temporary exhibit about French patriot Lafayette whose warship L'Hermione, actually its full size replica,... 更多
