This attraction has closed due to the lack of funds. They are trying to work out something for the future. It was an interesting but rather dry museum. Many other better venues in Fredericksburg.

Great place to see and learn about the history of Fredericksburg. Professional in look and feel. Like a much larger, big city Museum. Enjoyed my visit.
