The Civil War Museum at the Exchange Hotel is a museum containing exhibitions on the History of Gordonsville and medical and Civil War artifacts. Three floors of displays in an 1860 Railroad Hotel take the visitor back in time. The Georgian architecture with it's verandas and 2nd floor entry steps are reminiscent of Hotel days. The Civil War displays of uniforms, weapons and surgical artifacts remind the visitor of the era when the building served as a Battlefield Receiving Hospital. It is one of the few Receiving Hospitals in Virginia that is still standing.
