  • This is a nice place to spend an afternoon. There are always interesting exhibits. My only issue is that the museum has a lot of empty space and the gift shop since it moved upstairs seems like an afterthought. It's free to visit so you should definitely go if you get a chance.
  • While in town, we spent some time at this Museum and really enjoyed the exhibits! I'm sure they change and rotate every so often, so they probably keep it interesting! The museum is clean and well kept, that's for sure!
  • My son and daughter-in-law live in town and this was our 2nd visit. Almost every exhibit was new. Enjoyed the new exhibits and with free admission you can't beat it. Don't miss the outside balcony on the 3rd floor that overlooks the vintage signs.
  • We are from out of town and I took my 2 children (ages 4 and 18 months) to the Art Venture area (we only went to the Art Venture area) and we had a really great time. They had a nice selection of art and science based activities that BOTH my children enjoyed and were able to interact with. The space wasn't the largest, but they made very good use of that space. There were costumes and a stage to put on a play, magnets, puzzles, general art supplies, magnatiles, a 3D printer, and just loads of other activities. Next time we are in town I will return and I would highly recommend it to others.
  • Lots of good exhibits here. You can spend a pretty good amount of time here. They usually have a limited time exhibit so you should go back more than once. I would also recommend going up to the balcony. From the balcony you can see the coffee, Dr. Pepper, and the star all in one view.

Where to stay in Roanoke

The most architecturally interesting accommodations in Roanoke cluster in the historical center, south of Gainsboro district. The long-established hotels here have been joined by the more modern, purpose-built establishments. Look to the north and in the residential areas for more modest inns and guesthouses, and around the airport for some contemporary business-style hotels.
