  • We were met at the door by 2 nice ladies. We paid $7.00 to get in and we watched a 30 minute video. Then we walked from room to room. There was John Boy's, the living room, the kitchen and the Baldwin...  more »

  • It was ok but it was free for the weekend. There were vendors there also. I was enthralled by childhood memories seeing the displays . Although i was a small child it was a family event for us to sit in front of the television to watch the Waltons. The museum is very small and it is used as a community center. Rural Virginia has quaint areas. This definitely one of them. I wish there was also some emphasis on the Twilight Zone episodes that Earl Hamner wrote with memorabilia. All in all it will be pleasant experience for serious fans.
  • We went here at 2:30 and it turns out they close at 3. So we didn't want to pay the money for 30 minutes of rushing through. However I have seen lots of the show Walton's Mountain so I can reasonably guess what some of the exhibits are: Exhibit A: this is John boy's writing pen. As you can see it is obviously a magical pen because it never ran out of ink in 10 years. Exhibit B: this is an itemized list made by Mary Ellen which catalogues the 1,459 incredibly trivial things that she selfishly whined about on the show which didn't affect anyone else and could have been easily prevented with minimal planning. Take special note of item #856: "couldn't pass a test for nursing school because I didn't study the stuff that was on the test." Exhibit C: apparently Ben got tired of being short so these are his elevator heels (I'm not kidding, this was an actual episode I think??) Exhibit D: the writers didn't know how to develop a female character who wasn't a mother, homemaker, or big whiner like Mary Ellen. This exhibit was intentionally left blank because even we struggle to remember anything Erin did on the show. Exhibit E: Jason's guitar and army uniform. He was such a sensitive, romantic soul that he decided to fulfill his life by joining the army which would undoubtedly ask him to kill human beings at some point. Jason was a weird dude. Exhibit F: Jim Bob's still that he operated with Yancy. Because nothing says "family-friendly TV" like underage moonshiners. Exhibit G: Elizabeth's calico dress. She never got in trouble for anything at all and was constantly pitting family members against each other. If anyone deserved an honorary admission into House Slytherin, it would be her. ... In all seriousness, I've heard this is a cool place and I really want to go. I will update this review when I'm able to get there on time and enjoy the museum.
  • It's interesting, but it didn't hold my attention very long. I would enjoy coming here when the cast visits but there isn't much here otherwise. It's cool, though, to see where the roots of this iconic show came from.
  • Love the show watch it everyday on insp.275 NJ
  • Closed for season even though website stated it was open. Blah....
