Admission is free. There is a small museum in the visitor center and there is a shop behind that. Be sure to get your passport stamped!

I think the Chancellorsville battle was still an important turning point as Jackson was wounded here (his arm is in the area). Definitely check out his arm and the Ellwood house. The tour guide and staff were awesome.

Visitors center gives a good overview, then take the walk- reading the informational signs. You can do most of this in a bit over an hour. Not far from I-95 either, so it would make an excellent leg-stretching break on a long car trip.

We spent an hour walking through and reading all of the posted placards to learn about the battle - very interesting facts on the signs and easy walk around the site. We learned a lot in a short time!

If you just visit the Fredericksburg Battlefield, yes. But there is also Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Battlefields in the immediate area. That would be an overnighter. Have a great time!

There are not riding horses experiences any where close by. Again the Fredericksburg Area Vistors Center can help you out. Riding trails are located in more rural areas of the county.
