Fredericksburg Area Museum and Cultural Center [VA]

The Fredericksburg Area Museum and Cultural Center displays and interprets artifacts spanning 10 thousand years of area history, from a circa 8,000 BC Clovis point to materials from the 2004 Embrey Dam demolition. The Museum seeks to convey the stories these objects tell about the people who have lived in Fredericksburg and the surrounding counties.

The museum offers exhibits, self-guided and guided tours for school groups, in-class outreach presentations, traveling trunks for rent, and recreational and educational events.
