Chancellorsville Visitor Center Closed Beginning Dec. 23
The Chancellorsville Battlefield Visitor Center will be closed for renovation work until March 15, when we expect to open on a limited basis. The information desk, restrooms, and bookstore will open then, but exhibits will be closed as we install new.
Exhibit renovations at Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center
Exhibits are currently unavailable at the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center, as we remove old exhibits and prepare the building for new exhibits in June 2014. The information desk, bookstore, and restrooms are available.
Please see our Operating Hours and Seasons page for information on regularly scheduled guided tours.
Other guided tour requests can usually be accommodated from special groups, whether for a brief orientation talk (25-45 minutes, free) or for a half or full day tour ($200 or $300, respectively). Teachers wanting guides for school field trips should contact education coordinator Peter Maugle at (540) 654-5498. Those wanting guides for military staff rides, Civil War Round Tables or other group tours should contact Greg Mertz at (540) 373-6124.
Also see the special events page for additional programs.
