WALTON'S MOUNTAIN MUSEUM is located in the Piedmont Region foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Schuyler (Sky-ler), Virginia. Opened on October 16, 1992, this building was Schuyler's ca.1924 high & elementary school until 1955, grade school until 1991, and it is now our community center. "The Waltons" creator and John-Boy's alterego, Earl Hamner, grew up in the home across the street. WMM attracted as many as 90,000 guests in a year from all 50 states and 20 foreign countries! 

WALTON'S MOUNTAIN MUSEUM offers replicas of John-Boy's Bedroom, Ike Godsey's Store, "The Waltons" kitchen, "The Waltons" living room, and the new MILITARY MUSEUM annex. We have a 30-minute video featuring Earl Hamner and the stars of "The Waltons". We display hundreds of photographs and pieces of memorbilia. Visit our Recipe Machine, Exhibit, and Scripts rooms.

DIRECTIONS: WALTON'S MOUNTAIN MUSEUM is located off of State RT 29 between Charlottesville and Lynchburg Virginia. Guests traveling Interstate RTs 95 & 81 should exit at Interstate RT 64 to Charlottesville and take State RT 29 south. WMM is 40 miles north of Lynchburg or 30 miles south of Charlottesville. Take RT 6 East (Irish Road) for 5 miles; take a right on RT 800 (Schuyler Road) for 2 miles to stop sign; turn right on RT 617 (Rockfish River Road) and WMM is the second building on the right in the old school.

NOTICE: The business in front at that stop sign is not Walton's Mountain Museum and its gift shop is not associated with Walton's Mountain Museum's gift shop.

For those traveling from Monticello, Ash-Lawn, or Michie Tavern on Route 20... Go to Scottsville and take a right Route 6 West!! DO NOT go on Plank Road or Secretary Sands Road!! 10 miles later, take a left on Route 800 (Schuyler Road). CAUTION FOR THOSE DRIVING RT 29 NORTH: the 1st Schuyler sign is an extreme country road that will eventually bring you to WMM while the 2nd Schuyler sign is more direct. GPS coordinates: N37* 47.472' W078* 42.122' We had many complaints about MAPQUEST (R) sending guests out of their way and on dirt roads! Global Positioning Systems are not much better. PLEASE CALL FOR DIRECTIONS.
