“Wonderful exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Like taking the road less traveled, this gem of a museum is a terrific respite from the massive buildings on the mall. We happened to see the exhibit on women riding side saddle, not something you see every day and quite charming. It's a beautiful building mixing old with new seamlessly.

Very interesting 15mins to see beautiful paintings on wall and a beautifully displayed fly fishing exhibit on the left wall. The museum did not appear $10 worth to us so we passed.

“A Good Way to Spend a Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

This day trip is within easy travelling distance from Leesburg and once you enter Middleburg, this library and museum are easy to find. There is something for everyone to enjoy at both the library and museum---art, sculptures, weathervanes, old and rare books, collections, the buildings themselves, as well as the grounds. The guides are happy to facilitate your visit and are knowledgeable about the exhibits, as well as Middleburg itself.

“Must see in Middleburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Fabulous exhibit of art of sport fishing by many top artists as well as beautifully detailed art featuring birds in various natural settings by two artists . Was also a gallery with a more permanent exhibit related to horses with fox hunting or racing themes.

“Nice visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

It was a nice exhibit, a little disappointing, not as much Equestrian as I expected. More hunting and fishing pictures and art work.
