About James Monroe Museum and Memorial Library

The James Monroe Museum and Memorial Library, located in historic downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia, holds the country’s largest collection of artifacts and documents related to the fifth president of the United States.

The museum was first opened in 1927 by Monroe descendants as a place to house their personal collections, which had been handed down through generations of the family. Eventually, the museum was turned over to the Commonwealth of Virginia, and is now administered by the University of Mary Washington.
