This building was once used as a courthouse and was established in 1855.

The Lynchburg Museum is a beautiful building with an overlook of the Monument Terrace. It was built with brick, stucco, and granite. The architecture style is Greek Revival. When you visit, it is easy to notice the columns supporting the dome-like building. This museum was built as a courthouse in 1855, and its last restoration took place in the early 2000s. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

There are 3 floors to explore, and admission is free, but donations are welcome. It is open Friday, and Saturday from 10 am - 4 pm. You can also visit on a Sunday from 12 pm - 4 pm. The Lynchburg Museum shares Lynchburg's local history and the tobacco industry in the 1700s and 1800s. There are exhibits on the history of firefighting and the City fire department, astronauts from Lynchburg, the space shuttle, the Civil War, and how WWl affected Lynchburg. This place is full of historical photos and historical documents, antique toys, military items, fine art, and even costumes. Anyone that enjoys American history will have a good time at the Lynchburg Museum in Virginia.
