The Rural Heritage Museum is closed during the month of December. 
We look forward to seeing you in January.


Welcome Back. . .


Back to a time when the pace was a bit slower and life centered around the farm, family, and community.

At the Washington County Rural Heritage Museum you will learn about our region's beginnings and history, and how our rural and agricultural heritage continue to play a role in Washington County today.

Located at the Agricultural Education Center in Boonsboro, Maryland, the Rural Heritage Museum is open Saturdays and Sundays, 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. and available for group and school tours by appointment on both weekdays and weekends.  Please call in advance for private appointments outside of normal operating hours.  There are certain circumstances where the museum is not able to be open during the designated times. To prevent any inconveniences, we recommend calling or checking the website for any schedule updates prior to making your visit with us. 

There is no admission charge, but donations are gratefully accepted.

We invite you to take a look around our website and then visit us at the museum. It's just a short drive to an earlier time.
