Visited as part of a tour group but the overall impression was that the museum lacked any real "punch" in terms of it's exhibits. Maybe I'm over critical & that the Valentine offers a lot more to Richmond than I saw but the from a...More

This is so worth visiting and a definite recommendation. Great, informative, well done displays in the museum. Guided tour of the Wickham/Valentine home is awesome. Some original furnishings and artifacts. Others are period pieces. Rooms beautifully restored with noteworthy architectural details.

If you want to know about Richmond history, this place is for you. Exhibits were engaging and wide-ranging. I loved the city map on the floor in one of the first floor galleries. My favorite was a fashion exhibit...of very unusual fashion. The tour of...More

Granted we were there in mid January, but the house is amazing and our guide was great. She was an art history major and that added greatly to the tour. The house is a great example of showing off your wealth.
