Anyone interested in VA history will love Glencoe. After living in Radford for years I randomly popped into the museum one day out of curiosity and was so happy I did. I liked that the staff let me explore the upper levels of the home on my own and at my own pace, and were promptly ready to start the tour as soon as I came downstairs. My tour guide was amazing and is such a knowledgeable man! I so enjoyed his tour and loved talking with him about other historical gems around Radford. Also, the home itself is so well preserved with tons of interesting exhibits, it was truly a walk through local history! I couldn't stop looking at everything and indulging in my nerdy love of history!

The Glencoe Mansion in Radford is a wonderful place for art and history. The staff at the Glencoe are very knowledgeable. The grounds are well kept. Also on the Glencoe grounds is a replica of an old one-room school house. There is parking right near the front door. The Glencoe is two stories and features exhibits in the basement as well.

Very knowledgeable guide who did amazing with our group of children. The house is beautiful and a gem in Radford. I felt like I was in his home. I loved that while caring for the home and enforcing rules gently, my kids felt as welcome as we adults did.
