New Market Battlefield Military Museum, New Market
(3/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Owned and operated by John M. Bracken, New Market Battlefield Military Museum offers much to see. The majority of the collection consists of items from the American Civil War. There are original items from ancient Egypt, World War II, and everything in between. And this is all the private collection of John M. Bracken. This is the most impressive Civil War museum in the state of Virginia if not the east coast, and no one leaves disappointed!
