I'm not really into art galleries, but they do have a really nice collection of historical artworks and items. It was definitely worth the visit for us, although what is with the room full of horse pictures.

This museum is a must see for anyone visiting the city of Richmond. It has a n extensive collection to satisfy just about any artistic interest from African to Zuni. The grounds are beautiful as well. Also there is a map for children so that they can find special interests in the galleries throughout the museum.

Great main museum with lots of selection, National class rotating special exhibits, and a restaurant that's stellar if you're staying for the full day to look around. Get the membership if you have time and the inclination, and it includes free parking in the on-site garage, which is very worth it considering the terrible parking options otherwise. Plus, it pays... More

Traveling exhibits keep long time members like myself coming back year after year. A visitor can easily spend a day enjoying the exhibits, taking in... More

This is a great museum. Both the collection and setting are tremendous. We really couldn't believe that a city of this size could have such an impressive fine arts collection. It is clearly run by a great management and artistic team. Worth the journey to Richmond just to see this museum.

Wonderful museum. It has a wide variety of art ranging throughout history. They bring in a plethora of special exhibits that keep on coming back. Art nouveau exhibit is the best in the states that I have visit thus far.

Centrally located, this museum has a great lay out and a varied collection. We especially liked the Tattoo exhibit this month. From a fabrege egg to a mummy...young and old alike will find something of interest. They even have lovely places to eat, searing inside and out. The staff is helpful and courteous. We have to go back because we... More
