The Historic Shenandoah County Courthouse Museum and Visitor Center re-opened on Friday, September 4th, 2020, after being closed since early March due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Museum / Visitor Center is located at 103 N. Main Street in Woodstock VA.
The Museum and Visitor Center is now open every Friday and Saturday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM until the end of the year. The facility is normally closed during January & February and the same will be true for those months in 2021. The Museum may also be visited at other times by appointment via 540-459-1795.
There is no charge to visit the Museum and Visitor Center, though donations are accepted. The bookstore in the Visitor Center is fully stocked and we are also processing mail-in book orders. The US Forest Service currently has a special exhibit in the Visitor Center that will be in place until the end of the year.
In accordance with Covid-19 requirements, all visitors must wear a mask and observe social distance requirements currently in effect in the State of Virginia.
We hope you will visit soon.
