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

For those who want to explore a bit in this small, but quaint town of Strasburg, the Strasburg Museum is a wonderful little side venture, especially for train enthusiasts. I plan to go again when I have more time to linger. I was on my way out of town, needing to return home, but stopped in to 'check it out'... More

The museum is just beside the railroad, and it was first a pottery barn but later became a railway station. "Million" things to look at! A lot of history!

This was so chock full of stuff that I didn't know where to look first yet there was so much interesting and strange items in here, many of which I'd never seen before, including a display of various kinds of barbed wire, a perm machine, an unfinished painting of George Washington and some cool Native American artifacts.There's Civil War and...
