Welcome to the Museum of Culpeper History

The Museum showcases the rich history and interprets the significant events that shapes Culpeper today. From the dinosaurs that roamed here to the soldiers that camped and fought here there is much to discover!

We are Open!

In order to create a safe experience for you to visit during this time we are adhering to guidelines established by the Virginia Department of Health and the CDC. Visitation in the museum will be limited to no more than twelve visitors and other necessary safety procedures have been implemented to ensure you will feel more comfortable with your visit. We are excited to welcome you back!

Culpeper History & Heritage

We need your help  to improve and increase our current and future educational programs!

We place education at the forefront of ALL that we do and endeavor to educate and enlighten the public through our exhibits and programs.

We need your help to fund our ongoing education efforts and to improve and increase our future programs!

Your support has made possible:

  • monthly lectures and webinars
  • our monthly Hands on History series for preschool young learners
  • on demand tours of the museum for schools and tour groups
  • our annual DinoWalk tour of dinosaur tracks at Culpeper LuckStone Quarry

Did you know that more than half of our operating funds come from donations and contributions from you and our community? To be the best-small town community museum in Virginia, we need YOUR support!

Your donation will help fund our “wish list” of new programs:

  • developing monthly walking tours of downtown Culpeper
  • creating school education packets and in-class presentations
  • expanding and improving our children’s Discovery Zone
  • transforming the caboose into an exhibition and program space

We are committed to offering programs that are either free or low-cost for Culpeper County citizens. Your support allows us to present these programs to the community at or below cost.

YOUR MUSEUM NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT! Thank you!
