“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Faberge to French impressionists and American decorative arts to art from the Classic Age, this museum has it all. And free admission? It seems to good to be true. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Richmond, and now that we've been there, we would even travel to go back. Plan to spend at least half a day, but you could spend even more time. The sculpture garden is also lovely.

“Wow! Wonderful renovation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This was a venue for out of state colleagues that attended a conference. They were greatly impressed. It was my second visit since the renovation and it was even better than the first.

“..."bar scene" at a museum???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This place has EVERYTHING ...where do you go for great good (Amuse)...hear talk on Asian Art....than stop for a glass of wine and listen to some good jazz. And the price of admission is reasonable ...0.ok you have to pay for dinner ...the presentation ...and your wine. Value wise this is a no brainer for those visiting Richmond.

“How can this museum possibly be free?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

The exhibits of Eastern and African art are excellent, and the Faberge collection is one of the largest in the world (if not the largest). The European masters are well represented. This is probably one of the top ten art museums in the U.S.; I am not sure how admission stays free, but I intend to keep taking advantage of it.
