Museum of the Shenandoah Valley and Winchester Ciderworks
Join us for a special fall day in Winchester. We will begin with a visit to The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley to view the exhibit “Contributions: African Americans in the Shenandoah Valley.” This exhibit tells the stories of those who endured enslavement, resisted oppression, and achieved success. Using art, objects, and documents, the exhibition highlights how African Americans have contributed to the shaping of the Shenandoah Valley from the 1700s to today.
After your museum visit feel free to walk the lovely gardens and view the special display inspired by the Japanese art form of paper folding, “Origami in the Garden” presenting 11 larger-than-life displays of sculpture throughout the gardens. Ticket cost for the tour are included in your fee.
Following the tour of the museum and gardens, we will head downtown for lunch on our own at one of the many restaurants in the downtown mall. We then proceed to Winchester Ciderworks for a tour of the cidery and optional tastings. The Cidery offers real British-style cider and provides four pours of their flagship ciders for a small fee. Please note there are stairs to gain access to the tasting room.
* Lunch and cider tasting are not included in the registration fee.
