Un museo con una exquisita variedad de pintores, escultores y orfebres. Destaco tanto las esculturas como cuadros de Degas, el salón de joyas con variedades de brillantes y el espacio de Faberge con su delicada orfebrería. Amplia variedad de huevos esmaltadas a la vista.

We visited to fill an empty rainy day in Richmond. It was very nice. Well organized. Lots of state information. Up to date visuals.

A great place to learn history. Highly recommend for all ages. So many exhibits to look at in amazement. Plenty of parking and admission is so reasonable.

A rare gem tucked in on Arthur Ashe Blvd… it has been renovated recently and there is so much to see

On plus side, the museum handles large scale exhibits well, signs easy to read, entire space feels 'modern' you can tell it's been renovated. It's not an in-depth study - like most state history museums, it's a broad overview, and in my case was a 'filler' on the day our of town - and a little expensive for what it offers too, IMOP. There was a American Democracy collection on loan from the Smithsonian - without it, expense would have been amplified. Interpretive 'reaching' in the regional section: participation prizes and in general no hard looks at anything, save the obligatory regret over 'the past' (though I have to admire keeping the lost cause room on display - hey, it was real, or at least the myth was). All in all, the thing is decently done, more modern than most State promos, and they do have a much longer timeline to handle than say, Iowa, so can't knock it.

If my review is useful, please give me a “helpful” vote.

Caveat. The museum is in the midst of improvements/renovation so some of the museum's exhibits are "off line" and unavailable for viewing.

1. Bottom Line Up Front/frame of reference for my remarks. I have visited over 35 museums of this type and always have high expectations for museums of this type; this museum is professionally curated and contains some very nice artifacts. The architecture of the museum is very elegant and (on the day of my visit), it was very quiet and peaceful. It is definitely worth visiting if you are in the area and is worth a day trip even if you are not in the area.

2. Details of my visit

2.a. Date & Time. Saturday 24 Jul 2021.

2.b. Other patrons. During my visit, there were approximately three other groups consisting of 2 adults each.

2.c. Length of visit. I was at the museum 2 hours and read 75% of the informative placards.

3. Location. Check the museum’s website for current information; I plugged the address in to my iPhone and it took me directly to the museum.

4. Access

4.a. Parking. Paved / no charge / on the street in a residential/museum district.

4.b. Passenger vehicles. The parking spaces can be accessed by any type of passenger vehicle.

4.c. RV and tractor-trailers. I do not consider this attraction to be accessible by over-size vehicles.

5. Admission. Check the museum’s website for current information.

6. Hours of operation. Check the museum’s website for current information.

7. Handicap access. I noticed signs for the handicap parking area and access. There are several locations throughout the museum where benches are available.
On the day of my visit, all of the exhibits were on the first floor; when the restoration and upgrades are complete, there may be exhibits on the upper floors - I believe there is an elevator and would recommend telephoning the museum to confirm.

8. Child friendliness. I would assess that the museum is child-friendly. There are no small exhibits than can be pilfered.

9. Permissions/prohibitions

9.a. Food and drinks. Not permitted.

9.b. Photography. Non-flash photography is permitted.

9.c. Pets and service animals. I did not notice any signs but I would imagine that service animals (not pets) are permitted; I would recommend calling the museum to confirm.

10. Type/nature of visit. Visitors may conduct un-guided tours; I do not know if guided tours are available.

11. Exhibits - Landscapes of Virginia. Approximately thirty paintings depicting the different geographic areas of Virginia: Tidewater, Piedmont, Blue Ridge Mountains, Valley and Ridge, Appalachian Plateau.

12. Exhibits - The story of Virginia. Very large collection of exhibits/artifacts (from pre-historic times to present day). Of note are the following:

12.a. Map depicting the trade routes to/from various countries and the goods that were traded between them.

12.b. Map depicting the sources and destinations of African slaves.

12.c. General Robert E. Lee's field desk.

12.d. General Thomas J. (Stonewall) Jackson's pocket watch.

12.e. General Jeb Stuart's uniform.

13. Exhibits - Founding Fathers (I believe a temporary exhibit). Exhibits pertaining to Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton and Madison.

14. Amenities.

15.a. Restrooms. Restrooms are available and very clean.

15.b. Water fountains. Water fountains are available.

15.c. Gift shop. The gift shop appears to be temporary and is located in the lobby; it has a very small collection of items.

16. Conclusion. I intend to visit the museum again when the restoration/upgrade is complete but would recommend it to anyone in its present state.

This is a fabulous museum! I learn something new each time I visit. It has helped me gain a better understanding of Virginia’s past and all of the people who have lived here and the cultures they represent. The museum is privately funded and on the cutting edge of technology. This was the first museum in the area to post exhibits for adults online during the pandemic. The Banner lectures connect people with authors of new books with fascinating true stories. (These are better than fiction, because you can’t make this stuff up.) The gift shop offers an interesting assortment of books and gifts for all ages. Researchers find a treasure trove at this museum.
The museum is taking advantage of the challenges brought by the pandemic to remodel, so it’s closed now. I’ll be excited to visit it again when it re-opens.

Its a fine museum but unless we missed a floor or two, we felt there was some lacking. Maybe instead of ‘Virginia’ as the theme it could of been ‘Southeast’ or ‘Mid-Atlantic’ region and then there could’ve been more exhibits. I just feel there’s more history and actual items of history to display then what we saw at this museum.

Thank you for your comment. We agree, and we are happy to announce that we are in the midst of a large scale renovation which will double the gallery space, add a new cafe, reimagine the library and add event space. We hope you will return to visit once this project is complete in Spring 2022.

We didn't enjoy our visit. I think a significant portion was closed but entry was not reduced. We thought the exhibits we did see were dull. And why was there no history of the Native American population prior to the English arrival? Surely that is Virginian history too. As is, it's not worth the time or money.

We spent a couple hours here the other day. Because if covid it is set up as a one way walk through and masks are required. I really enjoyed reading about the earliest days of the history of Virginia. The fiat settlers in Jamestown to the conflicts with the many Indian tribes in the area. Even so far as the sailing routes of Columbus and the other explorers of the new world.

The artifacts used to describe the way of life and the conflicts were very interesting. Some of the later history concerned with Our country’s founding fathers from Virginia was very good.
Towards the later part of the tour you see a lot of excellent Civil War history from weaponry to medicine. I think I would have enjoyed a little more literature in why Virginia joined the other states in seceding from Union.

We then see a cool room showcasing Naomi of the companies and technology developed in Richmond and Virginia. Not much about the rest of the state (Roanoke my former residence).

A cool room detaining woman suffrage and the women’s movement along with the LGBT movement.

It was a really good couple of hours but I need to go back as I didn’t give the last few rooms as much time as I needed.
