This place is truly amazing. Thousands of artifacts from the Civil War. To take it all in was mind boggling. I really enjoyed looking at the change of weapons, the bios of the many individuals, the uniforms...I enjoyed everything. This is a must see place. Not only for a Civil War enthusiast, but also for a history buff, a military... 更多
We have been to the Virginia War Museum several times. The displays are well done. If your children are taking American History at school, this location will help them in their studies. We have taken Vets to the Virginia War Museum and one of them wished their state had something like this to visit.
A wonderful museum packed with a large among of Virginia history as well as general war and militaria. It's relatively inexpensive and the park is right there for kids to continue to burn off energy. Afterwards you can go to the beach or eat great seafood at the restaurant beside the James river bridge.
History buff heaven. This is an absolute jewel hidden off the road. There is so much to see and experience here. Take a long weekend afternoon or morning and spend time in each room. The exhibits are amazing.
The first visit was a fantastic surprise. There is so much history that each time we have visited, we left pursuing more information on new things we learned.
I visited the museum and the cost is low and the quality and quantity of the items on display is humongous and enormous and very recommended for history lovers and for was artifacts lovers.
So I have to state my bias- I used to walk to this place daily when I was a kid. I now live in Texas with a family of my own, but visit Virginia as often I can. Recently I was able to share this bit of my childhood with my own kids and let me tell you, the place... 更多
This was a wonderful museum. Had so much information, great detail from the beginning of America until now. Easy to follow along. Great artifacts and guns, knives, tanks, wagons used throughout history. Spent 3 hours here. Only one other family here so it was like having the museum to ourselves. Spotless.
Seemed like it would be the perfect thing for a rainy Memorial Day, and it was. I'm a history buff, but not a huge military history buff, but still found plenty of interesting artifacts to linger over. I also think they do a commendable job of keeping it fresh, from Revolutionary War up through Desert Storm / Desert Shield.
Excellent museum! Takes you sequentially from the Revolutionary War up to the present! Has genuine artifacts and memorabilia from many well known soldiers. An American history buff will be enchanted. Children will enjoy it too. Outside are a number of tanks, artillery, and memorials. There is a memorial for the four Chaplains who gave their life preservers to others when... 更多
