The Fairfax Museum & Visitor Center,1873

The Fairfax Museum & Visitor Center (Fairfax Elementary School)

is located between Washington Dulles International Airport and Washington, D.C., in the heart of Northern Virginia. Housed in the former Fairfax Elementary School--built in 1873 as the first two-story brick school in Fairfax County-- it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The facility is handicapped-accessible.

As a state-certified visitor center we provide general visitor information for Fairfax City, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.,  including lodging, restaurants, transportation and historic and natural attractions.  We also are the place to find out about special events in and around the City.

The museum produces permanent and special exhibitions on Fairfax City and Fairfax County history; provides educational outreach to school and youth groups; and offers walking tours of Old Town Fairfax and the City's historic buildings in the spring and fall.
