Our Mission: To acquire, document, protect and preserve, and exhibit the unique physical and culture history which reflects the story of the Town of Ashland, Virginia.  The Museum’s additional, but not lesser mission, is to research, exhibit, promote and publicize the rich historical and cultural heritage of the town for the benefit of residents and visitors.

Vision Statement: The Ashand Museum will be  a vibrant social, cultural and economic centerpiece of the Town and will be regarded as an entertaining and worthwhile tourist destination.  The Museum will be a resource for scholars, historians and educators as well as history buffs.  The Museum will preserve and catalog important objects and documents and will use those items to provide educational and cultural programs for the public.
