Alexandria Archaeology Museum Reviews
Interesting Collection and Exhibit of Archaeological Finds Jun 20, 2012
Located at the Torpedo Factory Art Center on the third floor, the museum has interesting exhibits of the history of Alexandria going back centuries. Now this was not something I sought out to so, I just chance upon it just like the Art center while at the Marina. It does take someone with keen archaeological interest to spend time going through the exhibits. I did find it interesting as I looked at the small bottles, and other pieces of finds that make Alexandria one od the nation's best preserved historical towns.
The Lee Street exhibit featuring 'A community Digs its past' is currently on display, the other interesting exhibit is the Alexandria Heritage Trail. If you have children with you, they will enjoy some of the hands on activities they have at the museum too. It is worth a stop, should you find yourself in Old town Alexandria.
PS: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
