Where are we going today?

Loudoun Heritage Farm Museum focuses on local agricultural heritage and provides an insight into historical rural life through well presented educational displays.

The interactive farmyard exhibit is a favourite with children, where they can milk a fairly convincing cow, collect play eggs from hen toys and ride the hobby horses.

Other programmes and activities are on offer here, as well as regular events.

    We went here as a family for Mothers Day, what a neat museum ! My daughters loved it especially, the general store. We have lived in Loudoun County for years and never knew this place existed until my wife found it on the internet. This place is great for the kids to play and learn about our past.

    This is a diamond in the ruff of Northern Virginia; and easily one of the best childrens museums in the area.

    The museum is packed full of organized, educational, and imaginative exhibits that teach children about historical farm life while they play.

    The best part is the full historic general store, which is an original store that was moved into the museum. It is large, and full of historic products, pretend food, a mail room, scales, and cash register. My son had to be pulled from the store after playing for over an hour. It is FABULOUS....Read More

This is a diamond in the ruff of Northern Virginia; and easily one of the best childrens museums in the area.

The museum is packed full of organized, educational, and imaginative exhibits that teach children about historical farm life while they play.

The best part is the full historic general store, which is an original store that was moved into the museum. It is large, and full of historic products, pretend food, a mail room, scales, and cash register. My son had to be pulled from the store after playing for over an hour. It is FABULOUS.

There is also a barn where children can collect eggs, dress up, milk a cow, and ride/care for pretend horses. Additionally, there are several high quality child-size tractors with a large open space for playing.

The adult section is also phenomenal. It is full of interesting artifacts and information. There is also a very nice gift shop with educational toys and locally made products.

The price is a steal; $4! I have taken my family again and again. It is perfect for rainy/cold days, as there is plenty of space for running around and playing. The staff is attentive and considerate. Outside the museum, you will find a historic town with several original buildings, which is also fabuolous. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This is definitely a high quality childrens museum. I stumbled upon it with my son one day when we were taking a walk at Claude Moore Park. I have no idea why they don'r market it as a childrens museum, because its the only museum in the area. The national childrens museum is a poor comparison. You will have a much better time here, and spend less money, while learning about local Loudoun history and farming. Enjoy!
