Central and Western Virginia Sights

Frontier Culture Museum

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

An outdoor living-history museum, the Frontier Culture Museum re-creates agrarian life in America. The four illustrative farmsteads, American, Scotch-Irish, German, and English, were painstakingly moved from their original sites and reassembled on the museum grounds. A West African village and an American Indian village are also among the exhibits. The livestock and plants here resemble the historic breeds and varieties as closely as possible. Special programs and activities,

held throughout the year, include soap and broom making, cornhusking bees, and supper and barn dances.

A fun day

We visited this in the fall, just a few weeks ago, and it was a lot of fun. Kids will love this place; lots of animals. Very interesting experience; you can take part in or just observe the different activities on the farms.
