The new Museum will be a keystone of Downtown Christiansburg. The acquisition of the building at 4 East Main Street will provide a vastly expanded space for the Museum to serve as a community hub and cultural center for all of the New River Valley with excellent artifact preservation facilities and engaging exhibit spaces.
The Museum’s greatest asset is the ability to ensure that all voices are heard and reflected in the stories of Montgomery County and the New River Valley. Since 1983, our collection has grown to over 16,000 objects, papers, photographs, and textiles. Rotating exhibits and opportunities for research and genealogy offer a lens for viewing the rich heritage and culture of this area.

Inspiring the Community
The Museum provides a platform for local and regional artists to promote their work through engaging and thought-provoking exhibits of paintings, quilts, sculpture, photography, and much more.
Education-to-Go Kits provide exciting learning opportunities for children in local schools. Family-friendly events such as Heritage Day are an important part of our community life.
