Cell Phone Tour
Henry Hill Cell Phone Tour
Manassas National Battlefield Park is proud to present the Henry Hill Cell Phone Tour. It's educational, fun, and easy to use! At nine stops along the one-mile loop trail, visitors can hear interpretive audio programs simply by calling in on their personal cell phones and selecting the story that matches their stop. These short programs further augment the visitor experience by helping them form a deeper understanding of the events that happened where they are standing.
Simply call 703-253-9002 to get started!
Stone Bridge Cell Phone Tour
Manassas National Battlefield is now including a natural resource interpretation of the Stone Bridge Loop Trail as a part of the Cell Phone Tour. The Stone Bridge Cell Phone Tour contains a special version that is just for kids that is packed with fun information about the plants and animals of the battlefield! To learn more about the Stone Bridge Loop Trail, call 703-253-9002 and follow the directions for the Stone Bridge Loop Tour.
Attention Educators! A Grand Re-Opening of the Manassas National Battlefield Park Stone Bridge OnCell tour will take place this Wednesday, September 24th at 4 pm. The walk will begin in the Stone Bridge parking lot off of Route 29. Linda Johnston, the author of the new cell phone tour, will be narrating in person, as we walk the tour. The new OnCell message helps kids discover the valuable wildlife habitats in the park while walking along the Stone Bridge loop trail. Each stop of the OnCell tour is now tied to Virginia Standards of Learning and helps kids learn, or reinforce what they've learned in school, while taking a fun hike in the outdoors. We hope to see you there!
Check back again soon for the Spanish version of the Stone Bridge Tour for kids.
