Culpeper Virginia Museums
I am pleased to announce that I have been invited to speak at the Culpeper Virginia Museum of Natural History's annual meeting on Tuesday, March 1, 2017. I will discuss the history of the American Civil Rights Movement and its impact on the history of our nation.
The lecture will be held at the Museum of Culpeper History in downtown Cul peper and snacks will be available and it is free.
The museum is open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 4 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 12 pm to 5 pm, and the museum's galleries are accessible by elevator. Self-guided tours are encouraged, and museum assistants and security staff are available. You should want to explore all the museums on your own, but you can also organize a tour with a group of friends or family members of your choice, such as your friends.
The museum is holding its second Gallery Talk of 2017, and some of the exhibits will make their public debut at the museum. For more information, please contact the Public Relations Department of the Culpeper Virginia Museum of Art at [email protected] for more details.
The majority of the paintings are sold directly by the artists, 35% of the sales go to the Virginia Museum of History and Culture. Residents and visitors can spend the day visiting the museum and Culpeper's history to learn more about our past.

Other activities you can do in Shenandoah National Park include hiking, biking, camping, canoeing, horseback riding and other outdoor activities. This event also includes all the games, handicrafts and activities you would expect from a museum festival.
The depot has become the new home of the Culpeper History Museum as a center and also offers a number of exciting outdoor events. The museum offers guided tours, a well-stocked gift shop and several interactive exhibitions covering a wide range of history, science, technology, art, history and culture. This spectacular exhibit was donated to the VMNH by the Smithsonian Institution on the occasion of its 50th anniversary.
The two-hour tour is narrated by the Culpeper History Museum curator, Dr. John F. Kennedy Jr., and a number of other experts.
The Museum of Culpeper even has a Triassic exhibition documenting the age of dinosaurs in the Cul-Peper region and organising a dino walk every summer. According to Bergmann, more than 4,000 dinosaur remains have been unearthed in the museum since the late 1980s. The excellently preserved dinosaur trace is a miracle that the scientists of the VMNH keep bringing back to the quarry. For K-12 training, 3D models of dinosaur tracks will find their way to the museum's Natural History Center.
In addition to a lively gallery documenting the life of Virginia's Monacan Indians, the museum also features an evolving Indian village and an exhibition on the history of the Culpeper Indians.
This picturesque building is one of the oldest houses of the Culpepers, built in 1749 and houses the newly renovated State Theatre. The region's Film and Cultural Center highlights the history of film in the United States and the local film industry. There are several theatres in the city, from the old State Theatre to a new, newly renovated, State and Artistic Theatre. Awarded the Great American Main Street Award in 2012, Cul peper's Downtown offers easy access to restaurants, bars, shops, restaurants and a variety of entertainment options. Culpesper has excellent connections to both Fredericksburg and Charlottesville, which are just a short drive away.
Getting to Culpeper: You can get to Lynchburg via Amtrak from Culpesper Station, where you can hop on Amtrak and hop off at one of the two trains that stop at Cul Peper Station every day.
After visiting the museum, take a stroll down Main Street to explore the historic town of Culpeper and adjacent avenues. At the end of Davis Street is the renovated railway depot, which houses the Chamber of Commerce's visitor center. Norfolk Southern Railway's decision to demolish part of the depot in 1985 has prompted local government, citizens and businesses to work together to save and restore this historic building and has led partners to consider a wider regeneration of the community.
Tourism chief Susan Pakies confirmed Culpepers surpasses all three attractions for their scenic beauty: the museum, downtown and its scenic beauty.
The past is important to Culpeper, as the professional appearance and atmosphere of the Museum of History of the Cul Peper proves. The museum's Civil War Gallery links to and from history, from the city's early history to its battlefields. History buffs will also find information about the surrounding county and places of historical interest, including the history of the city and its citizens. An interactive topographic map in the museum, "Culpepper's Story," tells visitors across the city about civil wars and battles.
