Family run, family owned business that put small Stuart Va. on the world map forever. Very courteous family and very generous people. Down home people. I would encourage people to come out for a visit and meet the founding father, Glen Wood himself.

Not a large museum; but very personal. Lots of photos, memorabilia, and race cars to see. Free admission and multiple family and workers shared personal stories. Very friendly!

Is this place special or what? No admittance fee, that in itself is unusual. It gets better. Mrs. Glen Wood, Bernece, was there and is she something. So personable, witty, and genuine. She remembers more than most decades younger. We sat and talked for over a half an hour. All of the old pictures showing the families long history in... More

We visited the museum to see the history of the Wood Brothers in racing. This museum has a great variety of photos, uniforms, cars, trophies and the hostess went out of her way to make us feel welcome.

The place is fantastic. Full of History, their past drivers pictures, trophy's, and memorabilia dating back to 1950. A MUST See for Nascar... More

We stopped by the museum while in town for the Martinsville NASCAR race. We were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by Mr. and Mrs. Wood themselves. They are a wonderful elderly couple, full of sprtiz and fun! It was an honor to meet them and walk around the indoor museum area. We then walked to the back and into the... More

Always looking for places to go and things to do, I saw Wood Brother's Museum in an online search. My wife and I decided to make a day trip of it. We took the back roads from Smith Mountain Lake where we live and arrived about 10:00 AM. Since neither of us is a die-hard race fan we figured to... More

This was my first visit to a "racing" museum. It was very small, but this museum didn't cover all of Nascar--just ALL of the Woods Brothers racing history. I started with a display of Trevor Bayne's Daytona win last year. There were several of his this things on display including his car "wrap", helmet, uniform, and the trophy. There were... More
