Good photo opportunity
Sep 2021
I visited Christ Church in September 2021. The church itself was closed. But it was interesting to walk around the burial ground outside the church and read the historical markers about all the famous people who visited the church from colonial times to present. There is also a gift shop but unfortunately it was also closed. Alexandria's Christ Church is a good photo opportunity and worth seeing even if it s just from the outside.

I was very disappointed to see that this was closed as well. I went twice just to ensure that I was there during the listed times but it was still closed. You can see a little of it through the windows. The outside of the building is well kept and there is also a burial ground was also well kept.

Great Church Community and Building
Dec 2020
This is a great building to come and visit. It's also an active church with a terrific congregation. If you are looking for a place to worship while in town, this is a great spot to do it.

Elegant history preserved.

This stunning church has a rich history which you are able to experience first hand. Sit in George Washington or The Lee Family pews. Attend a service in this still active church, or pay respects in the cemetary.

Beautiful historic church
Aug 2019
This beautifully restored, intimate church is one of the most important historic venues in the US. See the Washington family pew. One of my favorite features is the fascinating Palladian window behind the altar. The well maintained grounds include a historical graveyard.

Interesting tour, great volunteers
Jan 2019
Historically significant church, nothing really outstanding in terms of decoration or architecture, but the volunteers telling you about the history of the place are passionate and very knowledgeable. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Beautiful and peaceful
Sep 2019
I was able to visit on a lovely morning with a blue sky. The docent gave me a one-on-one tour that was wonderful, sharing the history and of course showing me George Washington's family pew. I also loved the gift shop, where I chatted with the friendly attendant and bought a brass ornament that will remind of this visit every holiday to come.
