  • The James Madison museum is a great place to visit. It is located in Orange Va and a fun little town. The history at the museum is amazing and worth every penny. The administrator of the museum is a true asset and has a ton ok knowledge. My family and I have been there multiple times and we learn something new each time.
  • Lots of great artifacts and local as well as national history! Orange county treasure!
  • A must stop in Orange County, much history in one place.
  • I am afraid that many people will miss this regional museum and they should not. It is about 12,000 feet of space with a variety of exhibits including ones on Madison. The staff person for our visit was enormously helpful. We saw this at the end of the day after we had been to Montpelier - and while that was great - so was this. It is well worth a stop!
