The Virginia Museum of the Civil War, Bushong Farm, and New Market Battlefield State Historical Park provide many opportunities to reflect upon the social and military struggle which changed the course of American history. All areas of the park are within an easy walking distance of the museum over relatively flat, grass covered ground. Allow time to explore the grounds and facilities, about two or three hours.
Begin your exploration of the battlefield at the Virginia Museum of the Civil War. Artifacts and dioramas convey the story of Virginia in the Civil War. Features of this museum include: Stained Glass Window depicting the war in the Shenandoah Valley by abstract artist Ami Shamir; the Emmy Award-winning film, “Field of Lost Shoes” and the Virginia Room, which chronicles the war in Virginia. A new exhibit is called the Kaminsky Gallery of Civil War Firearms, which features an encyclopedic collection of Civil War firearms.
