Those located in the city's historical neighborhoods--particularly those on or near Main Street--sit within walking distance of the city's most popular restaurants, cafes, and bars.

  • Ours was a very nice visit. The museum is a very well assembled and maintained wealth of local history and artifacts. Enjoyed it.
  • Had a great time visiting the museum and learning. Thank you
  • Great exhibits. Through all of their exhibits and buildings, you get a very clear picture of the life of the settlers of Fredericksburg. Worth the small price of admission.
  • Great introduction to how Germans settled this area and the hardships they endured. Buildings were open and showed how folks lived and their tools and furniture. Nice 15 minute film.
  • This is a must visit. Specially when history is reenacted. Great for children.
