A CALL TO ACTION!
The Museum serves residents, tourists, train travelers, children (of all ages), special interest groups, foreign travelers, and anyone who wishes to “discover” Culpeper. YOUR volunteer support mean the world to the Museum – and helps us become “the best small community museum in Virginia.”
The Museum changes exhibits every January. Displays and exhibits relate to a variety of topics that illuminate the long and varied history of Culpeper. In order for us to change shows annually, we often seek loans or donations of objects, documents and artifacts from residents that relate to these topics.
Some of the many items we have borrowed or received in recent years:
- Military hardware and memorabilia
- Agricultural tools, hardware
- Medical equipment
- Costumes, uniforms, linens, children’s attire, hats, coats, shoes
- Diaries, journals, letters, diplomas, yearbooks, photos, postcards, maps
- Archaeological finds: projectile points, arrowheads, axe heads, stone tools
- Guns, swords, bayonets, knives
- Artwork; paintings, sketches, watercolors
