Take History Home!

The museum shop offers great gift ideas, a wide variety of Alexandria-related merchandise and the very best selections from all the OHA museum stores. Special merchandise commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Your purchases support programming at Historic Alexandria's museums.

Today, The Lyceum is Alexandria's general city history museum.  During the Civil War, occupying Union forces seized the building and turned it into a hospital ward, serving both Union and captured Confederate wounded. The Lyceum was saved from demolition by Alexandria's City Council in 1969, to be renovated into the nation's first Bicentennial Center.


Open seven days a week, during Museum hours:

Monday - Saturday 10 a.m to 5 p.m.

Sunday 1-5 p.m.
