Frontier Culture Museum

I-81 Exit 222
US 250 W, Entrance 1/2 mi on Left at Light

The Frontier Culture Museum tells the story of thousands of people who migrated to colonial America, and of the life they created here for themselves and their descendents. The Museum is a living history of pre-immigration Europe & pre-Civil War Shenandoah Valley. There are five 17th, 18th, & 19th century farms from Europe, West Africa & America, and a working 18th century blacksmith forge.

To tell the story of early immigrants and their American descendents, the Museum has moved or reproduced examples of traditional rural buildings with a combination of interpretive signage and living history demonstrations.

The outdoor exhibits are located in separate areas: the Old World, West Africa and America. The Old World exhibits show rural life and culture in four homelands of early migrants to the American colonies.

Museum Store offers crafts & exclusive Moss Irish pottery.
