Renfrew Museum Park

Open dawn to dusk year-round and free of charge, Renfrew welcomes you to 
explore the historic grounds and miles of nature trails.
Renfrew Museum is open mid-April through mid-October from 1-4 pm and is a restored farmstead 
with many outbuildings to see and activities to participate in.  Your tour begins at our Visitors Center with a 
DVD presentation, and an explanation of the nation’s leading collection of John Bell and Bell family pottery.  
Paid admission takes you on a guided tour of the 1812 Renfrew Museum where you will see the kitchen, 
dining room, parlors and bedrooms with period furnishings throughout.
Now, two centuries after Daniel Royer’s day, much of the landscape is unchanged. As an historical 
institution, Renfrew offers its visitors an intimate view of the past. Visit us in Waynesboro, and discover 
how the agriculture, industry and domestic life of over 200 years ago worked together to make a prosperous 
Pennsylvania German farmstead.
A special feature of the Renfrew Museum is the only permanent public display of artifacts from the 
Snow Hill Cloister, a 19th century monastical society located in nearby Quincy, Pennsylvania.
The Royer-Nicodemus House and Farm are on the National Register of Historic Places.
Located in the Visitor Center is a quaint gift shop with an interesting array of items, many from local artisans. 
Gift shop hours during season are the same as museum hours.  
Off-season hours are Monday through Friday 11:00am until 4:00pm.
