Girl Scouts

The Manassas Museum looks forward to Girl Scouts of all ages experiencing a wide range of opportunities to learn about life's challenges and contribute as citizens of The Greater Manassas community. We are always happy to talk to individual parents or Scouts about specific projects. Please contact the Programs Coordinator, Doug Horhota, at 703-257-8265.
