Let’s Grow Together!

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.


Telling Your Story

Overshot Coverlet believed to have been
made by an enslaved woman in Montgomery County, c.1850.

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

Heritage Day and Garden Art, 2019

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.
