Research Services:

The Spotsylvania County Museum receives multiple research requests, so we ask that you be patient and understanding and we will reply as promptly as we can.

There are fees for research services. These fees include photocopies (50¢ per copy) and the appropriate amount for postage/shipping charges.

Appointments are not required at this time in order to make use of the research library. The hours to use the library are the same as the Museum (9am-5pm open daily).


There are fees for tours extending past the Museum and into the Courthouse area (including the Courthouse, Old Jail, and Spotsylvania Battlefield). Tours will be led by a trained staff member. We ask that tours be scheduled two weeks in advance, so that the appropriate staff is on hand, to insure the best quality service. Tours are held Tuesday thru Sunday between 9am-2pm. We custom tailor our tours to fit your wishes!
