A nice local offer for military families!

The Hampton History Museum is offering free admission to active duty and retired military and their families - as well as half-price membership to the museum - during April 2013.

This will allow military families to take advantage of upcoming events such as:

  • 2nd Saturday Family Day on April 13, 2013
  • Lunch in Time series looking at local landmark Hop’s Place
  • Front Porch Music Series on April 17, 2013
and to visit the current exhibit: An American Turning Point: The Civil War in Virginia – Surviving War (Exhibit Closes April 28, 2013)

Exhibit Description: Through artifacts and with interactive components, this engaging exhibition explores the impact of the war on civilian life by posing a series of questions for you to explore.

  • Were Unionists the patriots or the traitors?
  • How did some slaves support the Confederacy?
  • Why did western counties break away to form West Virginia?
  • How did civilians suffer?
  • What exactly was Lincoln’s role as “The Great Emancipator” and how did some slaves win freedom?

For information on these and other museum events visit or call (757) 727-1610.
