Excellent video about Loudoun County going back to very very early times. Helpful person there if you have a question. Good information set out on the walls and on individual exhibits. I found the stuff on the Civil War particularly interesting....Leesburg now under the control of one side, now under the control of the other. Also a series of letters... More

Cute ancient cabin next to the main museum. Definitely worth stopping by, especially to shelter from the rain. Interesting story of restoration; the whole building was nearly demolished to make way for a parking lot!

This is a fabulous museum in an historic building in Leesburg. Ms. Rogers was very informative and friendly. We asked tons of questions, and she was able to answer all of them!

I have attended many events hosted by the Museum from history lectures, history authors, to tea tastings, to caroling at the museum which hosts evening Christmas caroling through the downtown area. Very exciting activities.

Not as fresh and cared for as when Karen Quanbeck was the ED there. It is my understanding that the blue bloods on the board of directors did not want to get their hands dirty raising money and awareness of the facility. Loudoun County is one of the richest counties in the USofA yet can't support their schools properly or... More

A tiny museum in a log building reminiscent of 1700's Leesburg. Exhibits vary, but count on experiencing memorabilia dating back to pre-civil war through early and mid 1900's. The museum, and available guidebooks prepare visitors to walks through history of loudoun county, Leesburg and it's 100's of historic buildings.

It may not be a large museum buy it provided an hours worth of entertainment and learning with some great old pieces, displays and of which a few were interactive. I would recommend you take a little time and go inside,
