The Winmills were Virginia residents back in the days when many flocked to Warrenton for pleasure or refuge. One could take the train from Philadelphia or NYC directly to Warrenton for the weekend or for the season. Bobby and Viola Winmill were fixtures in driving,...More

This carriage museum is a wonderful complement to historic Morven Park, and the Davis Mansion. The carriages will take you back in time in the best possible way. This museum is well worth the trip!

I enjoyed walking through the museum with its variety of carriages. I was disappointed that several of the carriages had no descriptions. It might be nice to have a little guide that differentiated the different styles. There type of carriage was usually mentioned, but I...More

This is a wonderful collection of coaches, carriages, and wagons! All that's missing is the horses, ponies, or goats that made these vehicles (including sleighs!) go... If you have kids with you, prep them first by letting them know who General Tom Thumb was... then...More

This is a very cute museum included in the Morven Park ticket price. It's small, but the carriage collection and historical information about how they were used is very interesting. I recommend it for sure!

I had never before seen a carriage museum. This did not disappoint. The docent was very knowledgeable and friendly. An unusual window into life in the horse (and goat!) drawn carriage days.
