The Waldensian Heritage Museum located in the beautiful town of Valdese, across from the Waldensian Presbyterian Church, reflects Waldensian architecture and built in 1974. After an addition and renovation in 2006 the museum is now 12,000 sq. ft. of display space. The interior showcases photographs, clothing, crafts, home furnishings, church furnishings, farm implements, carpentry tools, wine making tools, toys, industry and household items donated by the early settlers and their families. Today their history and traditions are captured in the many beautiful displays of the museum.
