Living in Charlottesville, we do not often get over the mountains but I want to highlight our recent trip to the Fronier Culture Museum in Staunton. Younger kids will be enthralled by the many animals (ducks, chickens, sheep, cows) wandering this charming and authentic trip into America's past. Adults (and teens I hope) should find every aspect of th's :kiving" museum both engaging and educational.
The American Frontier Culture Museum works diligently to help preserve and share our rich and diverse American cultural heritage. The museum tells the story of the thousands of people who migrated to colonial America, and of the life they created here for themselves and their descendents. These first pioneers came to America during the 1600s and 1700s from communities in the hinterlands of England, Germany, Ireland, and West Africa.
To tell the story of these early immigrants and their American descendents, the Museum has moved or reproduced examples of traditional rural buildings from England, Germany, Ireland, West Africa, and America. The Museum REALLY engages the public at these exhibits with a combination of interpretive signage and living history demonstrations -- the staff and interpreters are authentic, knowledgeable and friendly!
LOVE this place!
