Visit Virginia's past at Frontier Culture Museum, a living history museum narrating the story of the Europeans and Africans who populated the Shenandoah River Valley in the early 18th century. The museum's outdoor exhibits include working farms staffed with costumed interpreters, who perform tasks that depict the daily life of German, English, Scottish, and Irish farmers. After visiting the exhibits dedicated to Old World traditions and lifestyles, drop by the museum's American exhibit, which contains recreations of American farm buildings from three different centuries. Be sure to visit the exhibit representing how a group of Native Americans lived in the area around the time European settlers arrived in the early 1700s.

  • I took a chance and was pleasantly surprised at this outdoor museum. Lots of walking! Interesting people/reenactments of various frontier cultures and how they lived. I would recommend.

  • This was really fun and educational. Pretty laid back. Several of the areas were "explore on your own". But then, it is Sunday. I would really like to come back when the demonstrations are in full swing. There's lots to do and see.
  • Great place to learn about the people who came before us and how they lived. Tip; rent the golf cart you will not regret it. And the place is very diverse.
