Heritage Farm Museum

Preserving the past and educating the future!

Located within Claude Moore Park in Sterling, Virginia, the Heritage Farm Museum lets you explore over 250 years of Loudoun County agriculture history through traditional, as well as, family friendly interactive exhibits. The Waxpool General Store and Farm Kitchen exhibits allow visitors to experience first hand what rural life was like 100 years ago. The Museum's Gift Shop also offers a variety of unique and Virginia-made items. The Heritage Farm Museum also offers a variety of school, scout and family programs. Special seasonal events are scheduled throughout the year such as our Autumn Apple Festival and Tractorpalooza.

We love the sight of buses in the parking lot. It’s field trip time!

Come explore our gallery tomorrow and learn about Round Hill’s own Hill High Orchard. 🍎
