“An Amazing Facility, with Congenial Staff Doing Fascinating Work”

Library of Congress National Audio Visual Conservation Center
Ranked #1 of 4 Fun & Games in Culpeper
Attraction details
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We attended a film workshop for 3 days. The optional tour was fascinating, and we were very impressed with the work that is being done there.

The building and the site are magnificent. This was our second visit, and we found it just as marvelous this time, The hillside is planted naturally with beautiful native trees, shrubs and flowers. The building itself is Leed Certified, with much of the facility being underground. Unless you know the building is there, you could almost miss it, as part of the design is for the plants to "hide" much of the building.

All of the staff, including the security staff, were warm and welcoming. Visitors should know that bags are searched.

If you can go watch a movies there do it. This building is built into the side of a mountain and something to see if you can get invited.

A great place to catch up on old films and its free. The downside are the seats - rather hard and uncomfortable.

This is an unusual building built into the side of a mountain however, you can't tour at this time. You can see some of the movies at an old theater in downtown Culpeper. Visitors center has information on this. Check out website for information on past and present use of this building.
