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.

Recent renovations have really been well thought out. A fun place to visit and learn without much effort. Of course the old money is displayed in what was once the bank's vault.

This is a somewhat small museum. It was interesting to view the history of Fredericksburg. It is worth a stop during a walking tour of the town.
