We took our 5 and 3 year olds here, because they love trains. It is a fantastic museum that includes many local items. We thought it was only a train museum before we entered. When we walked into the back room, we saw two levels. The kids enjoyed seeing the baby items from previous centuries. I thought it was well... More

Happened to go during Mayfest and admission was free. Disappointed that the model train display was not running nor did we get to even look at it. That was the basis of our visit with our 3 year old who is fascinated with trains. He did get to go in the caboose. Very pleased with the rest of the museum.

There is no single standout piece in this museum, but the artifacts that live here are strung together and elevated by the passion of the volunteers. The man at the front door introduces himself and remembers our names -- a small gesture that sets the tone for the rest of our stay here. Artifacts range from interesting (old war uniforms)... More

We are delighted to recommend this regional local Museum of many artifacts and everyday articles from by-gone eras, which were gathered and given by locals in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. It is only open seasonally on weekends from May through October. This is a former train depot, so railroad memorabilia is prominent here, as are also Civil War materials.... More

Some of our relatives names are listed there. The folks running the museum are friendly. There is quite a bit of history in the area.

The train prototype and History of the place. Gloria Stickley is a devoted president to the museum and a driving force behind it. All staff are volunteers. A great sense of devotion to the place. Nice building and great volunteers

We always like to check out local museums when we travel. We pulled into the parking lot and I thought "This won't take long". Boy was. I wrong! The staff is knowledgeable and the artifacts are well placed and noted. We were there for over an hour and a half and I wasn't disinterested for a second. Check this place... More

We visited this museum on a Saturday, which I recommend. That's when John is there to demonstrate his extensive train system through a day and a night scene. The rest of the museum is on two levels. One could easily spend hours there. Admission is very very reasonably price at &3.

A small museum loaded with interesting stuff. Don't miss the train cars attached to the building. It has native American, civil war, early settlers, pottery, and all sorts of exhibits. Certainly worth the $3 admission (50 cents for little kids). It closes for 6 months for the winter.

We stopped here on our way from Arlington to West Virginia and enjoyed the time we spent here. Although not big, the museum is crammed full of historical items, from old baby carriages to a moonshine still, to an old salon hairdryer. Although things weren't as well labeled as some fancier museums, it was fun just to wander around. Out... More
