Tucked right inside Claude Moore Park in Sterling, VA, this quaint but fairly detailed museum details the history of farming in Virginia, and allows a lot of hands-on activities for kids, from the apple festival to milking a cow on occasion. The barns also showcase a lot of historic farming equipment. For those without kids, this museum won't hold a... More

We like this place. It is fairly small and is in one building only. It is a good, small local farming museum. There are pedal tractors to ride, as well as a plastic cow to "milk". There is also a general store (to look at only). We spent about an hour here, which was about right. It would be more... More

This farm is amazing for kids and teens. This farm is a pretty decent size, it has fun activities and fun things to look at. The farm house looks cool and rustic.

Very educational and easy for adults and children. He learned much and we had to pull him in order to leave.

My son loves the once a month parents' night out event. For $15 he has dinner, plays with all the exhibits and learns about something related to farming. Every session has a theme. We drop off at 6 and pick up at 9. It is a great value and my seven year old son loves it.

There isn't really much to do to be honest. We went and looked around for a bit, but paying to visit that place isn't worth the month. Frying Pan Farm is much better if you're looking for a fun farm atmosphere.

I was in search of a way to entertain my three year old grandson, and this place ate up 2 plus hours. There was a $3 admission fee for him and $4 for me, but I thought it was worth it. Although this is supposed to be a "museum" and it does have old farm equipment, the real draw are... More

The museum has a great kid's section where they can milk a plastic cow, ride around on little John Deer push cars, collect plastic chicken eggs, visit an old general store stocked with plastic fruit amongst other things. The surrounding parklands are also very nice and have a lot of hiking trails.

We went with our 3 and 5 year old niece and nephew. It was a great activity for them on a hot, rainy day. We didn't realize that there was a kitchen area in the back of the museum, that was their favourite part! Very enjoyable.
