The Lynchburg Museum

The Lynchburg Museum is located in downtown Lynchburg. Lynchburg is about 1.5 hours away from us, give or take a few minutes depending on traffic.



This statue stands outside of the Museum. That's Uncle Buddy (left) and Cousin Don.

 

The Museum is located in the old courthouse. It's a good use of the structure.

 

The museum's entry price was just right. There were many things to see, read, and look at.

 

A special Civil War display was located in the basement.

 

I liked reading about the role women played in the Civil War.


The upper level housed a toy museum.

 

Hubby enjoyed reading about a local race car driver.

 
I liked looking at this old guitar, played by a local music legend.

  4. A very nice museum---they seem to have a great deal of variety with toys, musical instruments, and Civil War swords! I probably would have spent all my time with the toys. :-)
