Welcome to the Dahlgren Heritage Museum

Hours of Operation: Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Dahlgren Heritage Foundation opened a new museum in King George County, Virginia, in October 2013, that serves as a center for community education, recreation, unique exhibits and stunning naval artifacts. Through the efforts of many volunteers, this exciting project is off to a great start, and there are many ways that you can become involved. Using this website you can send us your comments and ideas, volunteer to help out, make an online donation, learn about upcoming museum events, become a member of the museum or sign up to receive updates through our email newsletter.

If you would like to bring your group or organization to the museum on hours not listed above please send us an email and we can make arrangements.
