“We had just moved here and I was looking for something to do for my birthday. We decided to check this home out as I am a painter as well. We were pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the grounds, home and other buildings were. We toured the home and the guide was great. It was a very relaxed place and somewhere we look forward to visiting again.”

“This is a nice museum that was the country home of a once-famous and decidedly prolific American artist. Gari Melcher remains well known in art circles and the Fredericksburg, VA area where many of his works are displayed. This is a good place for art lovers and worth the visit.”
