“Very educational with great activities for kids”

Heritage Farm Museum
Ranked #7 of 25 things to do in Sterling
Attraction details
Reviewed November 21, 2016

Tucked right inside Claude Moore Park in Sterling, VA, this quaint but fairly detailed museum details the history of farming in Virginia, and allows a lot of hands-on activities for kids, from the apple festival to milking a cow on occasion. The barns also showcase a lot of historic farming equipment. For those without kids, this museum won't hold a lot of sway if you have little interest in agriculture, but for those that enjoy interactive museums and walking the grounds, they'll enjoy this museum. I also recommend Oxon Hill Farm nearby in southeast DC.

We like this place. It is fairly small and is in one building only. It is a good, small local farming museum. There are pedal tractors to ride, as well as a plastic cow to "milk". There is also a general store (to look at only).

We spent about an hour here, which was about right. It would be more fun when they have their "farm days" and have more activities.

Very educational and easy for adults and children. He learned much and we had to pull him in order to leave.

My son loves the once a month parents' night out event. For $15 he has dinner, plays with all the exhibits and learns about something related to farming. Every session has a theme. We drop off at 6 and pick up at 9. It is a great value and my seven year old son loves it.
