enjoyed our self guided tour of this place. It is well marked for those with patience to read signs. Easy to do in about 30 minutes if you have impatient people in your group.

Really amazing history in a bite-size section of town. The building looked small, and we thought it'd be a quick trip. We were amazed by the information provided by the gentleman who we bought our tickets from.

There are a lot of stairs in the buildings and not suggested for the mobile challenged.

After listening to the history and walking through, you really feel what the prisoners endured.

*** The second section of the jail is super creepy feeling. ~ Definitely worth your time if you enjoy unsettling history.

When we entered and paid for our admission ($3.50 for seniors and military), the gentleman manning the desk proceeded to give us an overview of the jail’s history and was located on both floors. The stairs to the second floor are narrow and steep. At the bottom of the stairs is a door that leads to the courtyard and the second building. He said he normally did not believe in paranormal events but believes the jail is haunted. The museum consists of two buildings. The first building housed the original jail that consisted of four rooms. These rooms are now home to a gift store, a replica of the old kitchen, and rooms filled with displays that are rotated throughout the year. The second building has the jail cells used for both men and women, a prisoner bathroom, and a maximum-security cell. Also, of interest are exhibits showing dental and medical equipment. The tour is self-guided and easily completed in an hour.

This is local history at its best. Not only is the permanent collection authentic and well displayed but the temporary exhibits make coming back time and Gain well worth the visit.

I visited from Spotsylvania one Saturday. I love obscure places not as well known as some plantation homes, battlefields, etc. This place, though dark in its history, has an amazing tale or two to tell. The young man who was the guide was passionate about history and had so many interesting facts about not only the place but the area. He was super friendly. Sidenote: if you are "sensitive" and medium or into the paranormal and you have the utmost respect for those gone, this place is extremely active. I et a large tall man when I walked in immediately, an older woman in the kitchen, numerous children upstairs where they would hold women, sadly a horribly mentally ill woman in another room and a nasty man in one of the cells in the building attached. Be prepared.

We had just moved to Warrenton and we were looking for wedding venues that did not cost an arm and a leg but that still had "character". I called and they said the venue does host weddings and since I was marrying a cop, I thought this would be a great venue. It was a great ceremony for a small wedding ( 25 people limit).

We hosted our reception at Alwynton Manor where we could invite more family and friends.

Cio Bella ( also located in Warrenton VA) is a service that provides wedding officiants, photography, venue setup and a Trolley for transportation.

Thank you for visiting our museum and glad you enjoyed it! Please now, all parking in Warrenton is free, some spaces are just limited in time (ex. 2 hours). There shouldn't have been any meters for payment. We hope you will visit us again soon!

The museum is located smack in the center of town near city hall and the court. It's surrounded by a lovely garden with plants and flowers and a seating area. The museum is loaded with local history and makes for a pleasant visit.

My kids (8, 11, and 14) and I live locally, and we love this museum. The exhibits are nicely curated, and give a great history of the area. Take a few moments to chat with the staff, because they have lots of great additional info and interesting stories to tell!
