Like so many visitors, the museum delighted me and my family beyond expectations. I guess it is dwarfed by the Smithsonian located two hours away in the nation's capital; but make no mistake, it is worth to spend a day here. I particularly liked the statues and artifacts on the third floor from Indian subcontinent depicting ancient civilizations. I haven't... More

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is a surprisingly large art museum with an excellent permanent collection and some terrific exhibits. Let’s start with the museum itself. Admission is free. There is a convenient parking garage that costs something on the order of $5. It is a modern, well-built structure, and is surprisingly large. While the exterior and many areas... More

Going to this museum was an excuse to kill time as I had dropped the kids off at Kings Dominion, which is about 20 minutes away. Since it didn't make sense to return to Washington, I went into Richmond for the very first time and directly to the VMFA...And they basically had to kick me out at closing time. I... More

On one of the hottest days of summer, we decided to visit the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts . . . and 'fine' it was! We made sure to see the outside sculptures before the extreme heat of the day set in and then we headed inside. This FREE attraction had quite a variety of exhibits, from all over the... More

The Museum is a 1st class Institution and is accessible to all visitors no matter their economic situation. We love the grounds and the permanent collection is top notch and if you time it right you may even be able to view the best grouping of Faberge Eggs anywhere. The traveling exhibits are always worth making the time for. The... More

I live in Richmond. VFMA as we call it is a jewel! The permanent collection is outstanding, worth many visits. But the museum brings outstanding temporary exhibits that are big hits. It is state treasure!

We are patrons of the VMFA here in Richmond. This institute brings excellent shows and collections to our city for us to enjoy. It is a fabulous local art museum that strives to get great art for us to look at. There is a great restaurant in the building including the bistro for informal eating. Outside seating is offered in... More

Not too crowded, nicely displayed, the art was well representative of the period and the topic. Recommend an early arrival since it is a popular show. Added benefit is a very nice restaurant.
