Located in Waynesboro, VA, the P. Buckley Moss Museum houses the permanent collection of the renowned artist’s works. Born in New York City in 1933, Moss attended Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, where she specialized in graphic design and fine art. After her family moved to the Shenandoah Valley in 1964, Moss used the rural scenery and culture of Mennonite “plain” people to develop a unique artistic style. She became renowned not only in America, but also in Europe and Japan, for her distinctive creations and popular appeal, and won the nickname of “the people’s artist.”
The museum is at 150 P. Buckley Moss Museum Drive, off U.S. 340 just south of Interstate 64. Admission is free. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12:30 to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call 1-800-343-8643 or visit www.pbuckleymoss.com.

On a personal note, one of the most enjoyable features of this museum is the incredibly large handmade dollhouse in the entryway. The detail is incredible, even down to a little mouse scampering across the floor! Our children always enjoyed the dollhouse on our trips to the P. Buckley Moss Museum, and so did their parents!
The P. Buckley Moss Museum would be a great outing for you on your next visit to Cabin Creekwood.
