The office museum was very interesting. The guide working there gave us a very good review of the history of the area as it related to George Washington. It does not take long to go through the museum as it is small. Despite its small...More

Not very large so it doesn't take long to tour. The docent gives you an overview then you're on your own. Buy the combo ticket for three museums ($9/$10) for the best value.

George Washington had an office in a small cabin during the construction of Fort Loudoun 1755-1756. Today it has been expanded to include a small entrance room with souvenirs, which leads to the original office. Wall posters tell the story of the area, the French-Indian...More

We like to visit all historical sites, so, of course, this was on our list. Outside, the statue of George Washington is a very nice one. This small three room structure (one room is Entrance and Gift Store), houses some artifacts from the time that...More

George Washington used it as an office so that's interesting, but it's just a couple of small rooms and it takes less than half an hour to see so the admission fee ($5 adults, $2.50 youth) should be no more than half what they charge.

We visited as part of a three package tour, which included the Stonewall Jackson Headquarters and the Abram’s Delight. The docent described George Washington’s prerevolutionary war days in Winchester. The museum is small and only takes about 20-30 minutes to see (if that). There are...More

Wifee and I visited Stonewall Jackson's HQ and Brian told us about this place. There are a couple of metered parking stalls out front that they cover for free parking when you visit. Becky was helpful in explaining some of the displays.
