  • 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.
  • The Museum has some very interesting displays that explain the German heritage of Fredericksburg. I really enjoyed it.
  • We had so much fun, and the girls were were engrossed in learning.
