New exhibitions (opened March 1) include:

  • “People & Their Pets” This light-hearted exhibition reveals the history of pet ownership in Fredericksburg. From livestock, to the Dog Mart, to animal-oriented businesses in Fredericksburg, People & Their Pets will connect museum visitors to the history of everyone’s four-legged friends. This exhibition is on the first floor and is generously sponsored by the Fredericksburg SPCA, Off Leash K9 Training, The Rappahannock Chapter of the Isaak Walton League of America, Lisa Hourin, and Sonja Petersen.

  • “These Old Walls: A Town and Its Stories” This exhibit gives voice and life to the buildings, sites, and objects of Fredericksburg, using a combination of then-and-now photography, objects, illustrations, and primary sources to illuminate the story of Fredericksburg. The emphasis is on untold or rarely told stories that help visitors understand the breadth and diversity of the community as embodied in the town as it exists today. This exhibition is on the second floor and is generously sponsored by Lewis Insurance Associates and Kiwanis of Fredericksburg.

  • “Our FXBG Story: In Our Own Words” As a contemporary cultural center, FAM seeks to explore the stories of not only the past, but of the present as well. In this exhibition, Fredericksburgers share their experience in their own words. Featured stories include those of new comers and life-long residents, old and young, men and women. This exhibition is on the third floor and is generously sponsored by Joan Diaz-Mendez.

  • “The People’s Gallery” Fredericksburg is full of collectors; from match-box cars to sport-memorabilia, Fredericksburg residents have a lot to share! The introduction of this new gallery space called, “The People’s Gallery” will be given each year to a local collector to showcase what they collect and why. You’ll be surprised at some of the treasures our neighbors have! The first collection features a private collection of rare and one-of-a-kind Disney pieces and park ephemera. This exhibition is on the second floor and is generously sponsored by Lewis Insurance Associates.
