A fine example of early 20th Century architecture, the Moore Building has been renovated and serves as the VIRGINIA'S HEARTLAND REGIONAL VISITOR CENTER & TRANSPORTATION HERITAGE MUSEUM. As such it provides a regional visitor center for the area promoting tourist attractions through out the region. Renovations to the Moore Building included a visitor information area, office space, a meeting room, restrooms and kitchenette and two exhibit halls downstairs. The Museum is self-guided. The first exhibit room includes the model of the Civil Rights Memorial, the original full size can be seen on the grounds of the Capitol in Richmond; which is on loan to Prince Edward until 2011 when it will become a permanent exhibit at the Moton Museum. The second exhibit room is currently showing the history of Prince Edward County. A floor to ceiling cabinet from the original Prince Edward County Courthouse in Worsham is available to be viewed. Additionally, Branch Worsham's originial desk as Clerk of Court is displayed in this room. We welcome all visitors 7 days a week from 9 - 5. We are only closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Years Day, and Easter Sunday. Hours: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. - 361 days a year
