Visit your favorite historic Alexandria museums for Museum Store Sunday, the day after Small Business Saturday, for unique and historically inspired gifts with special offers, seasonal refreshments and more. The museums of historic Alexandria are pleased to participate in this international campaign led by the Museum Store Association.
The 1839 Greek Revival building serves as the City's history museum. An ongoing exhibition tells the story of Alexandria, once one of the busiest ports in America. Archaeological finds, old photographs, maps, original art works and a wide variety of historic artifacts provide the visitor with a picture of the City's past. Changing exhibitions explore special themes, people, places or events within Alexandria's history.
