“Not Much going On”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were disappointed that the art gallery was not open (nothing displayed). Limited information. There is a gift shop, if that is your interest.

“Small local museum in downtown Staunton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We always try to get to this interesting place whenever we visit this area. It is right across the street from the excellent, informative visitor center in a stately, historic building. They have regular
changing exhibits on history, art, etc. There is no charge to visit and they are closed on Sunday.

“Interesting exhibits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This place always has some interesting exhibits--and it's great to wander in and be surprised at what they are offering. We'd say that the only thing lacking is marketing--it's a little hard to identify where, what's going on, and what kind of place it is if you're not a local.

“I loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

When I visited here (totally on accident) they were having a showing of local youth art; totally awesome. The helpful volunteer at the desk also made my rainy day trip full of sunshine. Thank you. It’s in part because of you that I can’t wait to come back!

“Exhibits are Hit or Miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Located in a grand old Hotel, the exhibits are hit or miss. Sometimes they have some great local history exhibits such as on Jed, Hotchkiss and his maps, but more times than not it is more of an art gallery. A more permanent exhibit on local history would be nice.
