Excellent customer service by all the staff upon entering the museum to obtain tickets. The $8 "Sr" fee is such a small price for what you gain in an afternoon of sheer delight and education. After enjoying the museum, the " Glen Burnie" plantation self guided tour is absolutely phenomenal. The beautiful gardens of daffodils, grape hyacinths and other early Spring flowers, roses( not in bloom yet) vegetables (planting today), herbs and the Japanese "Tea" garden is so peaceful with the stone paths, small gurgling waterfalls, little streams throughout, the secret hideaways and beautiful green rolling lawns with rock prominences. The cemetery carries you back into another space in time when life was so very much different. Dont miss the pink house, with its special windows, that when opened, allowed you to stroll right out into the yard to enjoy the statutes and greenery. I thank all that hold this place so dear and offer it for our enjoyment. You are so dedicated and it shows.
Absolutely gorgeous! I love going there in the springtime when everything is coming into bloom. Theres a little bit of something for everyone- landscaping, long walks over large fields, an air-conditioned museum, and knowledgeable staff(when you can find them). The best part? Its just a few minutes from the heart of Winchester. However, I would never recommend trying to do this on a hot day- you will be absolutely miserable!
I love this museum especially the gardens. Ive visited multiple times this year with my 2year old. He likes walking around and see all the statues and the water. The geese and ducks are also a big hit. I like the vegetable garden and the Japanese garden. Beautiful! They have some nice exhibits in the main building.
Drove here from Charlottesville to see the Mucha exhibit that was there at the time. Bit of a road trip but scenic and who knew such a wonderful art museum was tucked away in Winchester?! Looks like a nicely packed events calendar (the graphic design was fabulously done.) Next time I have to explore the town.
Wow!! This place is gorgeously kept!! Start at the museum (amazing to see how life was lived in more primitive times) then treat yourself to the grounds. Gorgeous!! The docent Bob is just great (in the Wood home), he really knows his stuff and a treat of a personality. Definently worth the time!!
The house and gardens are lovely, and they host a variety of events throughout the year. The Gardens at Night concerts during the summer months are a blast! The museum is a great source of local history, and they bring in some fabulous temporary exhibits.
An eclectic collection of art and local lore that appeals to adults and children alike. The museum and garden grounds combine to form a double dose of delights! Within a stones throw of funky downtown Winchester, this place is very much worth a visit.
Great displays, events, and special shows, everything from Elvis to historical portraits. It has the entire history of the Shenandoah Valley from Neolithic to current event. Great family place, beautiful gardens, and interesting programs. Try it!
The gardens are a great place for picnics, walking, and enjoying nature. Wednesdays are free, and they encourage people to come enjoy it. The museum is very well laid out too. Lots of history packed in a small area.
A really nice museum, and a bit of a surprise in Winchester. Beautiful building and some nice permanent exhibits. We went for an Alphonse Mucha exhibit, which was really well done.
Such an amazing spot in Winchester. A past girlfriend and I used to come here all the time for dates. This was our favorite place to go on Valentines night!
I went on a Wednesday with friends which includes a free entrance fee. Its a nice museum along with their gardens, highly recommended for a family trip.
I visited the outdoor areas, which were great places to explore and relax. Overall I would recommend the museum as a place to visit.
We loved the exhibits and displays from Berkeley and Jefferson Counties! We wish we could give six stars. Keep up the great work!
Very nice grounds and garden. Museum had nice artwork display but actual artifacts and history of the valley was nothing special.
A beautiful museum with so much to see. I was so impressed by the friendliness of the volunteers. I cannot wait to return!
Entertaining, educational, very well kept, good people to guide you. Excellent music during summer, gorgeous gardens.
Such an excellent modern museum with a focus on the past of this pastoral region. Excellent Civil War exhibits.
Nice exhibits, the front desk was a little confusing but we enjoyed our visit, especially the gardens
