My husband and I actually lived in the Museum District for a year and a half. Its a beautiful place to live. Lots of trees, a few hidden gems (Chiocca's Sandwich Shop, Black Hand Coffee, Bandito's), the Art Museum is fantastic, Historical Society is great. Highly recommended. Not far away from Cary Town.

The Museum District is the neighborhood of Richmond located to the west of the Fan. It's sometimes referred to as the "upper Fan" in fact. Though there are old farmhouses mixed in, and Mansions to the North on Monument Avenue, the neighborhood is primarily composed of single family houses, townhouses, and apartment buildings from the 1920s and 1930s.
