This is the only state-owned Civil War museum in Virginia and is administered by the Virginia Military Institute. The site consists of three elements: The Virginia Museum of the Civil War, the New Market Battlefield State Historical Park and the Historic Bushong Farm.The site is on the National Register of Historic Places and is part of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail System.

The museum focuses on the whole war in the Commonwealth of Virginia with special attention paid to the Battle of New Market on May 15th 1864 and the role played by the corps of cadets from the Virginia Military Institute. A total of 257 cadets from VMI participated in the battle with 47 wounded and 10 killed because of the fighting.

The museum features exhibits, dioramas, artifacts from the battle and an Emmy-award winning film called Field of Lost Shoes shown hourly in the theater.

Outside visitors will enjoy three hundred acres of core battlefield property accessible by foot or car. The New Market Battlefield State Historical Park offers two walking trails across the farm and battlefield terminating atop Bushong's Hill and two scenic overlooks 100 feet above the Shenandoah River.

Historically-named features include the Field of Lost Shoes, a wheatfield so named by cadets because of lost footwear, and the Fatal Orchard, a dangerous part of the battlefield next to the farm.

Finally, the Bushong Farm features seven buildings to explore. The two frame houses were witnesses to the battle that day. Exhibits inside tell the story of what life was like in the Shenandoah Valley before and during the Civil War.

This was my first experience at a civil war site. This was very well done. It's set on the Bushong family farmland. Inside the museum were several exhibits and relics. An amazing civil war gun room exhibit. They had several original uniforms. What I noticed was, you walked through the exhibits learning names of soldiers who fought that battle. Then... 更多

Make sure you see the video first. It will give you a complete perspective of the battlefield and the participants. It is a wonderful story of one battle in the Civil War. You can also walk the actual battlefield and take a look at a nearby farm house that was involved in the battle. The artifact collection, along with the... 更多

Keep the name and the administrative group's name in mind when visiting. While you'll learn a fair amount about the entire civil war, this museum is targeted to telling the story of the war in Virginia, especially the New Market Battlefield. VMI runs the museum and it shows - the self advertising a bit over the top and would have... 更多

VMI and its alumni are to be commended for their stewardship of this historic site. The staff are knowledgeable and informative, the museum is carefully curated and maintained, and the battlefield is solemn and evocative. We wandered the grounds on a moody fall day, and got a better sense of what transpired here than at many of the other higher... 更多

This is what you visit to learn about the battle of New Market. Once you find the way in you will go PAST the New Market Battlefield Military Museum (the building that looks like an old-fashioned plantation with pillars) and get to the more modern-looking museum and auditorium. This is the place with the short walking tour of the battlefield,... 更多

Nicely done museum. Have been driving by location for years and had never stopped. Scheduled a day to visit. Took several hours to take self paced tour inside museum and watch very well done movie (45 min). Staff friendly and informative. Tables available outside for picnics, also second set of restrooms outside.

Anyone interested in our Civil War should visit this facility. The film is excellent and the museum provides much background of the VMI students participation in the New Market battle.

I particularly enjoyed the art work, mainly paintings about the civil war. Some of the exhibits were under development but most of it was informative and interesting.

My son is really interested in the civil war time so this was very interesting for him. My younger son got to do a scavenger hunt so it kept him busy. Not alot of walking unless you walk to the old house but still not that far. He house was neat to look through. I wouldn't go again but it... 更多

Really nice musueum on the site of the battle. Worth the time especially for those interested in history. Homestead from the time of the war. Give yourself about 1-2 hours to see everything.
