I love going to museums & make a point to see as many as I can -- the Smithsonian, MOMA, the Philadelphia Museum of Arts. I had no expectations of the VMFA, and it exceeded them by a mile. One important thing to note... IT'S FREE!...so it's great way to spend some time taking in some culture without blowing the... More

A beautiful Arts Museum in Richmond, VA. We have been members for years and especially enjoy the specialty exhibits which are brought in. Plenty of garage parking, very nice restaurant for snacks and lunches, beautiful and unique museum Gift Shop.

I am appreciative of what this museum has to offer. I have attended several special exhibits here and am impressed every time. Clean and easy to navigate, I really enjoy coming here and look forward to coming back for a new exhibit. Happy hours here are fun but usually very crowded. You must come as early as possible to reserve... More

Wide variety of art and artifacts from ancient to contemporary. A true jewel, VMFA has been renovated to better serve the public. It is serenely beautiful. Don't miss the Impressionist and the Faberge galleries.

I went to hear the Thursday night music in the cafe. A beautiful setting with music and surprisingly good food. Add to that a chance to walk around and see the variety of exhibit the museum offers was a treat. For the music, they have salads, sandwiches, and pizza plus an assortment of wine. A very pleasant evening and one... More

I have been a member of VMFA for many years now. They don't ever disappoint. They always have the very best of everything. The best and most interesting exhibits. The most recent was the Impressionists and the Japanese Tattoos(not for everyone but interesting nonetheless). The Impressionists was shown along with other artists of flowers and that exhibit was outstanding.

Such a great place to visit and see some exceptional art! This was one of my favorite places visited while in Richmond over a long weekend. It exceeded my expectations and I will definitely go back again. Best of all there is no charge for the regular exhibits. There was an extra traveling exhibit for $5 that I chose not... More

This was our first stop on a visit to Richmond. Parked in the garage for $5, enjoyed wandering through the free exhibits, and then walked through the fan district for lunch. We didn't get to see everything at the museum and plan to visit again when we are next in Richmond. It was exciting to see works by famous artists... More

We came to Richmond for the weekend, and extended our stay so we could see some of the sights. We loved the third floor of the Virginia Museum of the Arts, especially the French Area at one end of the third floor. Paintings by Van Gogh, Manet, Matisse, etc. The entrance to the museum is free. Parking is $5.00. We... More
