This first major battle site of the civil war is very historically significant. The site is very well maintained and cared for by NPS. The visitor center is well designed with a great in depth film.

On the way from the airport, we diverted to the Battlefield. It was a bit overwhelming. The Visitor Center is typical of the National Parks with a good movie. The highlight was a tour of the battlefield led by a very informative young man. From...More

Visitor's Center offers a small but good museum section and the park includes many walking trails should you wish to explore further. Old stone bridge is worth the stop.

Manassas is easy to navigate. If you stop at the Virginia Visitor Center, there are many maps available for not on the battlefields, but the town of Manassas. The landmarks are easy to find, and walk. Everyone we met was very friendly, and helpful. The...More
