    Historic Alexandria’s Museum stores offer unique and historically inspired gifts. Join Alexandria Archaeology Museum on Museum Store Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and receive 20% off your purchase, plus seasonal refreshments and more!

    The museum's exhibits highlight the process of archaeology and the latest Alexandria finds. A Community Digs its Past: The Lee Street Site, the museum's main exhibit, weaves the story of the wharves, taverns, bakery and Civil War privy excavated at the corner of Lee and Queen Streets together with the story of archaeologists at work, from excavation and historical research to artifact processing and archaeological conservation. In the Museum's Public Laboratory, you may find volunteers washing, marking and cataloging artifacts from the latest dig. Participate in hands-on activities, and explore small temporary exhibits highlighting archaeological research.
