  • Drove 8hrs to vacation outside Lexington, Va with my family, and this was one of the many stops we are making this week. Had an awesome time, and am giving a 4 star review. I am unable to give a 5 star review due to the fact the confederate flags are no longer up around Lee's marble statue because of the snowflake liberals, and terrorist organization black lives matter, complaining over the confederate flag. It's our history, they need put back up where they belong. Next, they will want Lee and his family removed from the crypt along with closing down the museum.
  • Beautiful buildings. Very informative and interesting. Free, donations accepted
  • I drove over 7 hours to see Lee's final resting spot and it's beyond beautiful. Our tour guide was Maggie and she was awesome. Down in the basement is the crypt and museum. They left his office the way it was....you can honestly feel his presence. I cried (and I"m a Scorpio...we never cry)
  • Learned interesting fact. Lee Chapel was never a proper church, it was never consecrated, and, unlike VMI never had regular Sunday services. This was done by design, as Gen. Lee wanted the students the students to attend their own denominations.
  • Very cool. Your guide, Ron, was great.
