Alexandria, Va., has long been a tourist destination because of its large historic district and lively restaurant and bar scene. Now, it also features a new assortment of Civil War tours, events and museum exhibits based on the second season of “Mercy Street” beginning Jan. 22. Although the PBS original series was not filmed in Alexandria, the story line is based on a real Civil War hotel-turned-Union-hospital located in that city.

Among the offerings is a “Mercy in Alexandria Walking Tour” every day between Jan. 22 and Feb. 26 at 1:30 p.m. beginning at the Alexandria Visitor Center. Tickets for adults are $15, and for seniors, students and veterans they are $12. Visitors will explore 19th-century Alexandria and hear behind-the-scenes stories of the places and characters seen in “Mercy Street.” Call 703-407-6663 for information.

A Civil War Wine Dinner is planned at Gadsby’s Tavern from 7 to 9 p.m. Jan. 26., with a first course and wine from the Gray Ghost Vineyards and with a dinner in the tavern’s main dining room that will feature a menu inspired by 19th-century dining. Tickets are $125 per person. You can sign up here.

Tours titled “This Tide of Wounded” and “From Slavery to Freedom” will be available at the Lee-Fendall House Museum on Jan. 21, Feb. 4 and Feb. 18. The first one is scheduled for 10 a.m. and the second at 2 p.m. The 1.5- to 2-hour tour costs $8 for an advance ticket and $10 on the day. Purchase tickets online or at the gift shop.

The Alexandria Archaeology Museum will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays between Jan. 15 and May 29 for visitors to see its Civil War collection free. It includes a diorama of a heating system constructed in Alexandria to warm hospital tents, a loaded Wickham musket discarded in a privy in the 1860s and an original May 26, 1861, edition of the New York Tribune with the shocking story of the shooting death of Union Col. Elmer Ellsworth, who had just retrieved a Confederate flag from the roof of an Alexandria building.
