The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV) is dedicated to preserving and enriching the cultural life and heritage of the Valley. This regional history complex includes a house dating to the eighteenth century, seven acres of spectacular gardens, and a 50,000-square-foot museum featuring changing exhibitions, a permanent display of miniature houses, and an expansive gallery exploring the history and decorative arts of the Shenandoah Valley. The MSV also includes a Makerspace Studio (open Tuesday and Sunday; admission required) and a Museum Store (admission not required). The galleries are open year-round; the house and gardens are open April through December.
At 214 acres, the MSV is the largest green space and only remaining working farm in the City of Winchester. Fundraising is underway for The Trails at the MSV, a project that will open 90 acres of the MSV landscape as a free-admission public park with more than three miles of trails for walking, hiking, and biking through woods, wetlands, and farm fields.
The galleries are open year-round, and the house and gardens are open seasonally (April though December). The site is closed Mondays.
