Nice museum
okt. 2021
Large museum dedicated to the Viginia's part in the Civil War. Also goes through indepth history of the war, campaigns and has plenty of artifacts. Aslo has a nice picnic area if you are eating on the road. Great staff, COVID safe with masks required and clean. Movie is a little cheesy but informative. Right next to expressway, so easy stop.

Must visit

Well presented museum providing the overview of the Battle. With a walk in the fields and seeing the house and structures added to the experience.
History here is for all to see and understand, glad this opportunity exists which hopefully the younger generations take advantage of.

Civil War Museum

Well organized. Great information very well displayed and historically explained.
Museum was concentrated on the Civil War, so not overwhelming with additional wars, etc.

Incredible view inside an important part of our history

We just saw a small part of the museum but it’s an incredible place to learn about the history of America. The movie called field of shoes is well done and very informative. The house is terrific.

we even went back!
aug. 2021
We spent so much time there, we went back a second day. Your admission is good for 7 days, so no extra expense. The inside displays were super informative, and the movie is a must see. Then we went outside and walked where the battle actually took place.

Very Interesting & Informative
aug. 2021
We'd driven past this battlefield & museum many times on our way to visit our daughter near Harrisonburg. This time, we decided to stop for a visit.

The first warning I will give you is that, as soon as you get to the exit ramp, you turn right & then make an immediate right onto a road that back-tracks parallel to I-81 South. The first attraction you will see is a Battlefield Military Museum, which deals with several battles, and is privately run. It looks like a large plantation house w/ big white columns in front. That is NOT this museum. Don't be fooled by their big signs about buying tickets there, just keep going.

When you get to the end of the road, it will dead-end in the entrance to the parking area in front of the circular-shaped museum with the distinctive, rust-colored framing. My next hint is that, if you visit on a very hot, humid day like we did, learn from the pro's (the people who volunteer/work at the museum) and drive around the parking lot, past the museum, and park in one of the spots on the far side of the parking lot in front of a shade tree. Those spots get shade in the afternoon.

Third hint: they offer discounts for seniors (65+), as well as active or retired military, so take advantage if you qualify. Your admission lasts all day, so feel free to leave to grab a bite for lunch and return. We came prepared w/ a picnic lunch. Outdoor tables are provided.

The museum itself is affiliated with the Virginia Military Institute (VMI). That is because the Battle of New Market, during the American Civil War, (spoiler alert) included cadets from VMI who actually marched up from Lexington & participated in the battle.

Most people who have visited will tell you the same thing: begin your visit with the film, "Field of Lost Shoes". The movie is shown every hour, on the hour. You will come to understand the title of the movie after you watch it. The movie will also set you up for a successful walk of the battlefield itself. The large brochure you will get when you pay the admission will guide you on the tour and offer informative insights along the way, based on numbered & lettered markers. Despite the heat & humidity, we walked the entire battlefield, including the portion on the other side of I-81, which is accessed via a pedestrian tunnel. That said, I would recommend a cool, sunny day in spring or fall. If your schedule was like ours and a hot, humid day was your only option, I would recommend light-weight, broad-brimmed hats w/ bottled water for the walk.

There is a small gift shop in the museum, as well as restrooms. There are additional restrooms in a separate bldg by the picnic tables.

Treated very rude by the young staff as soon as you walk in almost like it was a bother to take are money to just walk around outside. It will be are last visit to any of the southern battlefields.

A piece of history.
juli 2021 • Par
This museum is aesthetically very pleasing. The dioramas are very interesting. Unfortunately we did not have time to wait and see the movie and several of the areas were being refurbished. Our biggest disappointment was that the main house on the property was not open even though we were told it was. The things were were able to see and experience were well done we just should have been properly informed about the refurbishment and building closures.

Get the correct museum!

The movie is well done, the museum presents a balanced view of the battle, and war. Enjoyed the farmhouse on site too!
DO NOT be fooled by the other "civil war museum" that is the first building on the road to the real museum, a private highly biased entity!

This museum was a pleasant surprise. There were no crowds. A very well laid out museum. Parking was easy and the movie is well worth the fee.
