Learn About The History At Reston Historic Trust And Museum

The Reston Historic Trust and Museum was founded in 1996 as a community based nonprofit organization that preserves the past, informs the present, and influences the future of Reston through its exhibits, public programs, and events including Founder’s Day, the Reston Home Tour, and Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta. Reston Historic Trust and Museum is located at Lake Anne Plaza 1639 Washington Plaza Reston VA.

Reston Historic Trust and Museum

The goals of the Reston Historic Trust and Museum are to engage the public in an exploration of community history, to promote Reston as a destination point for tourism, and to collect, preserve and interpret the artifacts and documents of Reston’s history.

Visitors can learn about the unique history of Reston, America’s first successfully planned community through exhibits and a short film that discusses Reston’s history from the 1960s to the present day. Children can create their own planned community with building blocks in the museum.

The admission to the museum is free. The museum offers a gift shop along with the exhibits.
