If I was taught about the French and Indian war in school, I clearly wasn't listening. Thankfully, visiting George Washington's office gave me a good background on the war. It was the event that proved Washington would become a great military man. The museum is...More

We were visiting downtown Winchester and happened upon this by chance. It's a museum and is interesting. Would have been nice to also have some recreations of what the office might have looked like when Washington was there. Also the small diorama type display of...More

We decided to pay the entrance fee of $3.75 and found we should have just photographed the building from outside. There's a diorama depicting old Winchester and Fort Loudon, lots of wording on the walls explaining the French-Indian war. It's a very small room with...More

Very interesting tour, not too long and not rushed through either. Great deal to get a ticket for $10.00 to cover 3 tours in the area. Ticket good for one year. Very educational, but not boring at all!

This small museum is in the actual building that served as Washington's office. The exhibits are adequate to tell his story during that chapter of his life. There are no guided tours.

I did not go inside. Just stopped by to see the outside of the building, read the signs, sit in the courtyard, and appreciate the history. Great little spot on a busy corner. Worth a visit.

Interesting piece of history about GW. Not that big, but a lot of interesting info for the history buff.

George Washington's office contains artifacts of the period and information on Washington's time in Winchester. The building consists of 3 rooms and is a self guided attraction, though the museum attendant gives an introduction on request. I would not recommend for small children.

First off you will be taken back by the small size of the building, it really only 2 small rooms. Short tour is narrated by guide. Will only take you 15-30 minutes to make the stop. Some artifacts, not a whole lot but the real...More
