  • Fredericksburg is an American town founded by a German pioneer. In this village you can see the life of the early pioneers, entering the school that taught German and English, by looking at the fire station, the home of the founder, some houses of villagers, the barber shop (where you did the bathroom) and other buildings of the period. Recommend a visit, admission $5.

  • I thought the museum did a great job telling the story of the early settlers of Fredericksburg. Very family friendly, although strollers are difficult to get in and out of the exhibits. I’d say it’s a must see if you plan on visiting this town.
  • Very Nice and Friendly, Good tour interesting history. Worth a Visit especially with kids
  • Well kept and very cool. Enjoyed hour Touring through. Had audio playing in each historic Building.
