“A Dab of Virginia History”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2006

This is a tiny museum on one of the floors in The Center on the Square in downtown Roanoke, VA. The museum has a small section showing artifacts of the Indians who once lived in the woodlands of Virginia. There are some small displays on early settlers of Virginia. Then there was a hall of antique dresses from the 1950s back to the early 1800s. There was a BIG display of derby cars, which might interest some people, but I thought it was a big waste of space. This museum should have been free, but it was $3 to get in... for about 7 minutes worth of entertainment.
