The Alexandria Archaeology Museum is on the third floor of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, at 105 N. Union Street in Old Town Alexandria.
Step into the museum and watch as professional archeologists, volunteers, and students, work to reconstruct the history of Alexandria fragment by fragment. The main exhibit at the museum, Archaeologists at Work: The Lee Street Site, highlights one city block at the corner of Queen and Lee Street to offer a fascinating glimpse of Alexandria’s history and shows how archaeologists study the past.
The museum also displays their latest digs including artifacts from pre-historic sites, an 18-century tavern, and a 13,000-year-old Clovis point. You may even find and talk to the archaeologists and volunteers working in the public lab. You can also participate in the hands-on activities and programs at the museum such as Dive into Archaeology, a summer camp for teens, site tours, among others.
The Alexandria Archaeology Museum is open Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday 1-5 p.m.
