Museum of the Shenandoah Valley Today
A visit to this museum is a must in any trip to the Shenandoah Valley! First opened in the spring of 2005, the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV) tells the story of the great region for which it is named. Designed by Michael Graves, the MSV anchors a regional history museum complex that also includes the Glen Burnie Historic House and six acres of spectacular gardens. There is something for everyone here: European, American, and Shenandoah Valley furniture, decorative arts, and paintings; an amazing collection of furnished miniature houses and rooms; state-of-the-art audio and video presentations; hands-on activities for children; a Tea Room serving lunch and desserts; and a Museum Store. The museum is open year-round, the house and gardens March through November. All are open Tuesday-Sunday, 10-4. Experience the Valley at the MSV!
