First Fridays

Friday, December 5th 5pm-8pm

 

As part of “First Friday,” the Lynchburg Museum at 901 Court Street will be open free of charge on Friday, December 5th from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. The Museum will showcase items from its weapon collection that span over 200 years. Throughout history many different kinds of weapons have been utilized ranging from the traditional—guns and swords—to propaganda used at home to support actions abroad.

 

 

Highlights of the exhibit include a Lynchburg Home Guard militia sword, recruitment posters from World War I and World War II, a World War I gas mask, a Japanese Arisaka rifle from World War II, and language translation books for soldiers. Among the historic photographs is an image of local aviator Vincent “Squeek” Burnett raising funds for a WW II B-17 bomber: “The City of Lynchburg.” The artifacts will remain on display throughout the weekend. The Museum is open Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday noon-4pm.

 

 

The exhibition Experience The James also remains on display through December 31, 2015, covering the art, history, natural resources, and archaeology related to “America’s Founding River.”  The annual Christmas Open House at Point of Honor is also on the horizon on Sunday December 7th from noon – 4 pm. The home will be decorated for an early American Christmas with period music, free refreshments, tours, and a sale in the Gift Shop.

 

The Museum is on the free trolley route that loops between participating attractions. For more information, call 455-6226 or visit the Museum’s Facebook page, or at Twitter/LburgMuse.
