The Museum showcases Bedford's history, including early Native American life through the War Between the States, and further into the Twentieth Century.  The Mission of the Bedford Museum and Genealogical Library is to develop and maintain files for genealogical and historical research as well as collecting, preserving, and interpreting objects of historical significance to the City of Bedford and Bedford County, Virginia.


The Bedford Museum is proud to present

Weekly Bluegrass Music

Every Friday night from 7pm - 9pm the third floor of the Bedford Museum will fill with the sounds of good ol' homegrown music. On the first, third, and fourth Friday's of each month the evening will be a jam session that anyone and everyone can attend a $5.00 donation is requested. On the second Friday of every month we will be hosting local bands and asking for a $10.00 donation for attendance to help cover our costs.



**Bluegrass jams will be still be held here at the museum throughout the remainder of the year, weather permitting. Our paid bands will resume again in February, check back periodically for a listing of our bands for 2016.**






All space in the parking lots are available after 5pm even the ones marked 'reserved'. The parking lots on the sides of the municipal building next door are also available (the ones behind the building are reserved for the local police). There is a public parking lot behind the First Citizens Bank diagonally across the street. There is also a public parking lot at the bottom of the hill behind the museum but it is a brisk walk up the hill.
