The museum was very interesting. Had a great area for kids to dress up and the Dino tracks. The location is great and it’s right by the train tracks, with trains going by. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is because the displays with all the wording were put together so some of the wording was cut off and an interactive part wasn’t working and when I told the lady who took our money, she said she was just a volunteer but she would let someone know. The coolest picture was hung so high that you couldn’t really see it and appreciate it. We really enjoyed learning about all the Culpeper history.

We have visited Culpeper several times over the last year, and began our visit here at the museum / Visitor's Center to get the scoop on what Culpeper has to offer. If you are looking for local information, and a slice of local history, this is the place to start! Super nice, knowledgeable, informative folks. Wiling and able to give to information on just about every business, shop, brewery and winery in the general Culpeper area and also provide a wonderfully insightful history lesson too. We stopped by this past weekend just to say hello, given how helpful they have been to us, and to check in to see if there were any special events happening. Highly recommend that you stop by here if you are looking for local insight too.

This is a really neat museum for a small town. The location in the train station makes it just a bit better than the norm.
